DURHAM, N.C. – Two Blue Devils have received midseason All-America recognition from Inside Lacrosse, as released Thursday. Senior attacker and draw specialist Olivia Jenner and sophomore attacker Charlotte North were both tabbed to the second team.
Jenner has put together an impressive senior season on the attacking end while continuing to lead a draw control unit that ranks second in the nation with over 18 draws per game. The co-captain from Annapolis, Md., owns a career-best 55 points on 37 goals and 18 assists following a career-high six-goal outing last Saturday against Syracuse. Jenner enters this weekend ranked 10th in the country in draw controls with an average of seven per game and also ranks among the ACC’s scoring leaders in goals per game (3.08) and points per game (4.50).
Jenner has topped the century mark in career goals and points this season and is second among all Division I active players with 446 career draw controls.
Showing no signs of slowing down in her sophomore season, North paces the Blue Devils with 56 goals and 19 assists. The Dallas, Texas native broke Duke’s single-game points record with an 11-point output in February against Presbyterian and matched the program’s single-game assist record with six in the same contest. North heads into the weekend as the national leader in points per game (6.25) and is ranked third in goals per game (4.67). She owns a hat trick in 11 of 12 contests on the season.
North also surpassed the 100 point and goal-marks for her career this season, becoming the fastest player in Duke history to achieve both milestones.
Jenner, North and the 13th-ranked Blue Devils head north to take on the nation’s top-ranked team Saturday in Boston College. The ACC matchup gets underway at 12 p.m. on ACC Network Extra.
