Jenkins completed her collegiate career with 17 goals and 23 assists. She is the daughter of former Seattle Sounder (1976-70) Tommy Jenkins.

The All-American trio helped the Falcons (17-3) win their third consecutive GNAC championship and qualify for the NCAA Division II Tournament for the ninth straight season. SPU posted a 4-0 opening-round victory over Grand Canyon before losing 2-1 to Cal State L.A. in the West Region semifinal.

This marks the ninth straight season a Seattle Pacific women’s soccer player has received All-America acclaim.

The women’s soccer All-America team is sponsored for the sixth year by Daktronics, Inc., an acknowledged world leader in scoring, timing and programmable display systems for virtually every sport at every level of competition. The team was voted on by members of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
