In just her fifth season at Utah State University Eastern (USUE), Danielle Jensen led the Lady Eagles to their best season ever, including a top-five ranking in the nation. On Wednesday, she was named the American Volleyball Coaches Association Region Coach of the Year out of all two-year colleges in the western U.S. for the team’s many achievements. She is one of nine coaches to receive this honor throughout the NJCAA.
USUE went 25-7 on the year with a 9-2 record in SWAC. On top of that, the Lady Eagles went 2-2 in the NJCAA D1 National Tournament and finished the year seventh in the nation. They also defeated 11 nationally ranked teams on the year and bolstered NJCAA D1 First Team All-American Rachel West.
In the past five seasons, Jensen has accumulated a 97-53 record at the helm. In addition, the Lady Eagles have increased their win percentage every year since Jensen donned the Navy blue and white. USUE has now cracked the top 20 for the last two consecutive years.
Congratulations to Jensen and the Lady Eagles on their many accomplishments this year.
