2017 VSN GIRLS' LACROSSE PLAYER OF THE YEAR
MADDIE JENNER, MCDONOGH SCHOOL
Jenner was the irresistible force for the nation's top-ranked program. The junior midfielder is Varsity Sports Network's Player of the Year.
Jenner scored 44 goals for McDonogh (22-0 overall), which claimed its ninth straight IAAM A Conference championship. She was dominant on draw controls, claiming 165, giving her squad ability to control the offensive end and kept opponents from establishing possession runs.
She’s the most dominant high school draw person I’ve ever seen," said McDonogh coach Chris Robinson.
The 6-foot-1 Jenner used her height and length to win possession out the air or on the ground. She emerged as an offensive threat, finishing second in goals and fourth in scoring (48 points) for the Owings Mills powerhouse.
"I knew I had to step up on the offensive end," said Jenner.
Jenner's signature performance came in the Eagles' 12-9 victory over Notre Dame Prep in the IAAM A final. She recorded a hat trick and accounted for 14 draw controls (McDonogh won 20 of 23).
"She's the best high school player in the country," said Notre Dame Prep coach Mac Ford. "For what she does, there's no other dominant player."
A two-time All-IAAM A selection, Jenner is verbally committed to Duke University where older sister and former McDonogh standout draw specialist Liv is a rising junior.
