As captain of the Opals, Jenna led the way at the Olympic squad training camp in March on the Gold Coast.

“It is a big year for us with minimal time to prepare, so this was a really important camp for us all and we are very happy with what we have achieved during the week,” she said.

A mainstay in the Opals because of her abilities to both create points and defend them, Jenna had a rocky start to her international career with injury robbing her of a spot on the 2005 FIBA U19 World Championships team.

But it wasn’t too long a wait to wear the national colours when she was picked for the 2007 FIBA U21 World Championships.

Jenna grabbed her Opals start at the 2010 FIBA World titles after her first WNBL All-Star Five honour with the Melbourne Boomers. Jenna began attracting overseas attention with the Los Angeles Sparks offering her a WNBA contract for the 2011 season.

She was a member of the London 2012 Olympic Team that won bronze, beating Russia in the play-off.

At 26, Jenna enjoyed the best season of her WNBL career in 2013-14, claiming a fourth WNBL All-Star Five honour in five seasons. She has since moved to the Jayco Southside Flyers.

She moved WNBA teams from the Sparks to the Seattle Storm and also played in Europe, before returning home in 2017. Jenna then won gold for the Opals at the 2018 Commonwealth Games and a silver at the 2018 FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup.
