DURHAM, N.C. – An illustrious career as Duke’s all-time leading draw control specialist came to a close Wednesday as senior Olivia Jenner was recognized with second team All-America honors by the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association.

Already a second team All-America selection by Inside Lacrosse this spring, Jenner collected the first All-America nod of her career from the IWLCA. She was a first team IWLCA All-South Region pick at attack this season.

Jenner left her mark on the Duke program over four seasons, totaling 512 career draw controls to establish the school record and rank sixth all-time in the NCAA Division I record book. As a senior, she broke her own program single season record in the category with 150 draws and set the Blue Devils’ single-game record with 20 in the 2019 regular season finale. Behind her efforts at the draw, Duke topped the ACC and ranked second nationally in draw controls per game (18.74) for the season.

The 2019 campaign also saw Jenner excel on the offensive end, tying for first on the team in assists (23) and ranking second in goals (59) and points (82). She surpassed the 100 goal and point milestones for her career during an outstanding senior season that also saw her earn first team All-ACC and ACC All-Tournament Team distinctions. In addition, Jenner was named one of 25 nominees for the 2019 Tewaaraton Award.

A co-captain from Annapolis, Md., Jenner was selected eighth overall in April’s Women’s Professional Lacrosse League (WPLL) Spring Draft.
