Jensen will also be a new addition to the National Team this year. She has been playing lacrosse for only three short years but has been a varsity player at Corona Del Mar High School since her freshman year. She is accountable for an impressive 49 goals for the CDM Sea Kings. She has played for both XTEAM and Team OC clubs and has been awarded Athlete of the Week by the OC Register, as well as recognized as an All-League Honors in 2014.

Why are you most excited about being able to play for the National Team? “To be able to go to a super fun tournament with my friends.”

What is your favorite lacrosse memory? “My high school was playing our rival team, Newport Harbor, and there was one second left in the half and I scored a shot from a straight pass and everyone was screaming.”

If you could describe yourself in four “hashtags” what would they be? “#funny #weird #spazzy #awesome”

If you were told you had to live the rest of your life as an animal what animal would you be and why? “Cheetah because they are super fast and pretty.”

“Determined to have a full field impact, Jensen spent last summer practicing determined to play midfield. I have never seen a player improve as much as she did simply by hard-work and determination. Jensen is truly passionate about the game of lacrosse. She one of the most competitive players I have coached and when she wants to score, you better watch out. Jensen strength and aggressiveness has proven successful as Corona Del Mar’s center draw control specialist. With the combination of her stick work, shot placements and dodges she is hard to stop.” – Corona Del Mar Coach, Aly Simons
