Jenna Mertz is a freshman midfielder from West Chester, Pa., majoring in business.
The best piece of advice I’ve received is don’t sweat the small things.
I chose to come to JMU because I fell in love with the players, coach, atmosphere, and campus.
My favorite non-lacrosse memory is my senior summer with my best friends.
My favorite lacrosse memory is beating Henderson, one of our regional rivals, in the Katie Sampson Tournament.
Something about me that would surprise people is I am deathly afraid of sharks.
The accomplishment of which I am proudest is getting a scholarship to college.
My favorite thing about lacrosse is the flow of the game.
A person who is an inspiration to me is my mom, because she is very independent and hardworking yet remains compassionate and caring.
The one thing I miss most about my hometown is knowing everything about everyone.
The one thing I can’t live without is my iPod.
The most played artist on my iPod is Jack Johnson, because his music mellows me out and is very relaxing.
A way that I relax is sleeping on the beach.
One of the top items on my bucket list is to backpack through Europe.
