At the Milton Invitational, she finished 7th in her division (19:44).

Jennifer finished 5th in the Regional Championships among Putnam/Northern Westchester small schools, earning All-League, All-County, and All-State Honorable Mention. She holds every school record for cross country and six school records in track for individual and relay events. Jennifer’s commitment to athletics is evident on the basketball court as well. She has played on the Byram Hills Varsity Basketball Team from grades 8 to 11. She earned All-League and All-Conference Honors twice and was the team MVP last season.

In school, Jennifer is a member of the Athletic Advisory Council, the Captain’s Council, and SALT (Student Athletic Leadership Team).  She participates on the Acting With Integrity Committee and is a member of the Science Olympiad Team.
