“Jenna is a tremendous athlete that really competes. She has always been “labeled” a little undersized to play inside but she is such a fierce competitor. You cannot teach heart and Jenna has a big one. She plays like she’s 6’1. She is versatile both offensively and defensively. Offensively she can play in the post or on the wing. She has a great first step and has the ability to drive to the basket or shoot the three. Defensively she can guard a post or a perimeter player.
Jenna comes from a great program with a lot of tradition. Coach Gunnare’s style of play is very similar to our style and we feel like Jenna’s transition should be an easy one. I have the utmost respect for Coach Gunnare and his program. He does it the right way and gets his team to play extremely hard. Jenna is a good one. I am very excited about Jenna’s decision to be a Yellow Jacket. She will bring a lot of experience to our team, exclaims Coach Nore”
