DURHAM, N.C. – Junior attacker Olivia Jenner was named a second team All-South Region selection by the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association, as announced by the organization Friday.
Also a second team All-ACC honoree this spring, Jenner received all-region recognition for the first time in her career.
An impressive junior campaign saw Jenner lead the Blue Devils at the draw for the third time in as many seasons. The Annapolis, Md., native surpassed her own program single season record of 110 draw controls in April, and her 149 draws to wrap up the year top the ACC and tie for the second-most nationally. Jenner became Duke’s all-time career draw controls leader in March, and with 362 career draws, she currently ranks third in the category among all Division I players nationwide. She rounded out the season with seven double-digit draw control performances, including a career-best 15 draws in a March 10 win over Louisville.
Jenner also excelled on the attacking end this spring, ranking second on the team in goals (31) and third in points (44). She notched six hat tricks, including a pair of four-goal performances against ACC opponents Syracuse and North Carolina, and added three multiple-assist games. Jenner was named the Brine/US Lacrosse National Player of the Week April 2 following a four-goal, seven-draw control showing in a victory over the 11th-ranked Orange.
Jenner was one of 128 Division I student-athletes recognized on the 2018 IWLCA All-Region teams. These student-athletes are now eligible for inclusion on the organization’s All-America teams, which will be announced in mid-June.
