O'Brien was named a 2007-08 AVCA High School Senior All-American, a prestigious award that recognizes only 32 players nationwide.

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."
