Jenna Donohue and Liz Leyden, girls varsity ice hockey head coach.

A talented and dedicated multi-sport athlete since age eight, Jenna Donohue wanted to play collegiate ice hockey for as long as she can remember. In fact, it was a college coach who advised her to develop her skills at a prep school. Her first visit — Loomis Chaffee.

For Jenna, the varsity hockey program was a major reason to choose Loomis, but ultimately it was the way the school enables students to balance excellent academics and championship-level athletics that made Loomis stand out. Jenna also loved the welcoming and friendly community.

Did Jenna reach the goal she set as a young athlete? Yes, and more. Jenna has excelled on the ice and lacrosse field, serving as co-captain for both teams, and was recognized by the Athletics Department with the Barbara W. Erickson Senior Athletic Achievement Prize. Next year she will play both hockey and lacrosse at college. She also has served as a leader for the Sophomore Retreat and newly formed Financial Literacy program and has explored a wide variety of interests in the classroom, including economics, neuropsychology, ceramics, and creative writing.
