Watten On Wellborn: "Jennifer is another great addition to our program this year. As a senior transfer from Birmingham Southern University, she provides a great amount of experience, leadership and enthusiasm. Jennifer is extremely solid behind the plate, and she has stepped in and become a leader as well as being a great threat offensively. She takes control of her defense and has a great amount of respect and confidence from her pitchers. Jennifer is determined to make the most of her senior season on the field and we are excited to see the impact she will be able to have at the top Division I level."
