The women’s volleyball Hurricanes continue their preparation for the upcoming season with a defensive addition to their roster in the form of Jenna MacFarlane, a libero from Fredericton, New Brunswick. MacFarlane has been accepted to the Environmental Applied Science Technology program at Holland College.
“I decided to enroll at Holland College because I am eager to have a hands-on learning opportunity. I am excited to be joining the Hurricanes volleyball team because of the experience and development I will obtain while playing at the collegiate level,” shared MacFarlane.
Over the past six years, MacFarlane has spent time playing volleyball at the Fredericton High School, the Spartans Volleyball Club as well as the Reds Volleyball Club in Fredericton.
In three seasons at the provincial level, MacFarlane placed third, first and then second in her senior year in the playoffs; she also took home a silver medal at the U16 Nationals.
The 5’4” honours student looks to contribute to the Hurricanes this season in a positive way.
“I am a very vocal player and make my presence known on the court. I maintain a very positive attitude with both my teammates and coaching staff. Next season, I will bring a strong work ethic and fun spirit, I will also bring enthusiasm and high energy, and a drive to do my best at all times.”
MacFarlane helped her team to a first-place finish at the 2019 Mizuno Boston Volleyball Festival.
When asked about what the Hurricanes fans can expect from her as a player, she had this to say.
“Fans can expect a high intensity player with lots of heart and grit. My passion for this sport shines through when I am on the court.”
The Hurricanes are the 2019 Atlantic Collegiate Athletic Association silver medalists.
