Coach Kazmarik is returning to Georgia after spending the last few years coaching collegiately at St. Bonaventure University and Longwood University. She will be teaching Language Arts, US History, and World History at Saint Francis Day School and she will be joining Lassiter High School as their offensive coordinator.
A Georgia native, Jenna is a product of Lambert High School where she was a 4x All-State Selection, a US Lacrosse All-American as a junior and senior, and the 2011 AJC Player of the Year. After competing at the club level, she took her skills to the next level first at Johns Hopkins University then as a transfer to Winthrop University.
While at Winthrop, she was twice named First Team All-Conference, cumulating in a 2015 Big South Championship (the first-ever in program history) where she was also named Big South Offensive Player of the Year. She capped off her career by bringing Winthrop into the national spotlight with her 78 goals and 3.90 average per game her senior season, which ranked No. 1 across NCAA Division 1. Just this past spring, she was honored along with four other teammates as a member of the Big South All-Decade Team.
Her biggest goal is to reach as many Georgia laxers and young women as she can to help them build the skills and mindset necessary to thrive at their current and potential next level. All with the hope they can achieve success, happiness, and confidence that rivals or surpasses her own.
