Jenna Collins Selected to 2018 IWLCA Senior All-Star Team
ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Navy women’s lacrosse senior Jenna Collins (Clarksville, Md.) was selected to play in the 2018 Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association Senior All-Star Game, as announced by the IWLCA. Collins is the 11th player in program history to be selected to the IWLCA All-Star Team.
The 44 players selected in each Division have been divided into two teams: North and South. Collins was selected as a member of the South Team. The Senior All-Star games will be held on Tierney Field at US Lacrosse Headquarters in Sparks, Md. on Saturday, June 2, 2018. The Division I teams will play the first game at 11:30 a.m. Admission is free of charge. The game will also be web-streamed live on IWLCA-tv.com.
In addition, Collins will open up her professional career this Saturday as the midfielder takes the field at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium as a member of the Baltimore Brave of the Women’s Professional Lacrosse League (WPLL). Collins and the Brave take on the Philadelphia Fire at 4:00 p.m.
Prior to her graduation, Collins was awarded the Vice Admiral Lawrence Sword for Women, which is presented to that woman of the graduating class who is considered by the Association's Athletic Council to have personally excelled in women's athletics during her years of varsity competition. She is the first women’s lacrosse player to win the sword since Lizzy Rullan (2014-16) in 2016 (Rullan also played soccer) and the first women’s lacrosse only student-athlete to ever win the Sword.
Collins won four varsity letters for the Mids and graduated as one of the best female athletes in school history. She is a three-time Patriot League Midfielder of the Year, as well as a four-time member of the Patriot League First Team.
Collins is a two-time Inside Lacrosse All-American, while earning IWLCA All-South Region and All-ECAC accolades for three consecutive seasons. She was a nominee (one of 25) for the Tewaaraton Award, which is awarded to the top lacrosse player in the country.
Collins was a three-time member of the Patriot League All-Tournament team, while earning MVP honors in 2017. She helped Navy win back-to-back Patriot League Tournament Championships and make a pair of appearances in the NCAA Tournament where the Mids advanced to the quarterfinals both years and to the 2017 NCAA Final Four – the first appearance by a women’s team from a Service Academy in history.
Collins finished her college career as the school’s record holder in goals (224), shots (487), shots on goal (365), free-position goals (58), games played (84) and games started (84). She is the third player in program history with 200 or more goals and the third player with 300 or more points. With two assists in the Patriot League Semifinals against Lehigh, she became the first player in school history with both 200 or more career goals and 100 or more career assists.
