Recruit Profile
Hard-working, focused, and coachable, with a huge love for the game. Versatile draw taker, strong shooter, and disruptive defender. High lax IQ and an encouraging, unselfish team player.

Honors/AP/IB student athlete. Despite the challenges of COVID-19 on the sport I love, I've found ways to workout more on my own than ever before; focusing on my endurance and stick skills. I can't wait for the spring 2021 season where my high school team is poised to finish on top of the competitive WCAC league.

During my freshman year at Our Lady of Good Counsel High School I was JV team captain and a starting midfielder who led our team in assists and came second in draw controls. Sophomore year I played Varsity pre-season, mostly at defense - taking draws occasionally - before the season was cut short. I now rotate between low and high attack for GC varsity this 2021 spring season.

I started playing rec lacrosse in kindergarden in my hometown of Rockville, MD. My first club team was MC Elite and I then switched to Rebels and Maryland Select when my family moved to Olney, MD. I primarily played goalie from 3rd to 6th grade, switching back to field when I hit the 7th grade where I took up the draw. My elevated ability to see the field and my comfort with the stick in both hands stemmed from my time as a goalie and has since grown exponentially and turned me into a threat anywhere on the field. I'm primarily the starting draw taker for my club team, but am a gritty and quick player on the circle as well. I also shift to defense and attack as needed by my coaches.

As a student I've taken a mix of honors and AP/IB courses since my freshman year and have made the Principal's List every year. I look forward to finding the right fit to continue my academic pursuits and play the sport I love at the next level.

Jesse has amazing ball handling abilities and is a major asset in the transition game because she can control the ball, make good decisions, and get up and down the field with ease. She is vocal on defense and can take control of an offense - something that made her an easy choice for JV captain as a freshman. She works hard on the draw - both taking it and on the circle - and fights for every loose ball.

Jesse has a tremendous handle and as a coach I'm super comfortable with the ball in her stick! She makes precision passes and has great finishing ability! She can also be super effective on the draw! I strongly feel she will make an impact at the next level b/c her handles are so smooth and she can get up and down the field!
