Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer: Senior Jada Jensen is a varsity starter for all four seasons of sports. She is on the volleyball court, basketball court, oval track, soccer field, and softball field. Jensen has been involved in extracurriculars ever since her mother could get her into the YMCA Youth programs.
“When I was younger, it was a way of my mom getting me to make friends easily, meeting new people, and socializing at that age,” said Jensen. As she got older, it has been the upperclassmen who have motivated her throughout high school. By seeing them contribute to the team and work hard, Jensen knew that she was going to be a motivator too when she was an upperclassman.
One downfall of playing sports is the amount of free time that you get. “I don’t have a lot of free time, but I have made it work between school and sports,” said Jensen. She has learned many life lessons throughout the years of playing sports, including managing her time, school comes first, and “what you put into it is what you get out of it.” Using these life lessons, she is weighing out the options of continuing her sports career for dueling basketball and soccer at the college level.
