A 6-foot outside hitter from Matthews, NC, O'Brien has an impressive volleyball resume with four straight State Championship titles at Charlotte Latin School under coach Suzie Pignetti. O'Brien was named best offensive player on her team and accumulated more than 1,000 kills in her four-year career. She recorded 405 kills, 226 digs and 35 blocks during her senior year. ... O'Brien was named a 2007-08 AVCA High School Senior All-American, a prestigious award that recognizes only 32 players nationwide.
"This award is very deserved because she has accomplished so much," said Coronel. "Jenny is a winner, she knows how to compete and fight for each point and I'm happy she was recognized. Jenny's work ethic and competitive mentality will pay huge dividends and allow her the opportunity to make a difference as a freshman on our team. Jenny hits a `heavy ball,' She's extremely powerful and also plays outstanding defense I was immediately impressed with her vocal leadership on the court. She is a passionate, driven player which makes her a lot of fun to watch."
