Coach Peck says: "Jenn really played a major role in our success last year with her work behind the plate. She is an unselfish player and one of our hardest workers who truly understands what is on the line this year. She does an excellent job in working with our pitchers, and has really stepped up as a leader and captain. Jenn has a strong knowledge of the game, and we need her to have a strong year for us on defensive and quality at-bats in the box. We have tweaked several parts of her game, and we are looking for her to take the next step forward in her final year as a Lady Bison."
