CVHS Grad Green Chooses Basketball Over Soccer

Standout point guard to play at College of William & Mary.

Jenna Green faced the tough decision of whether to pursue basketball or soccer in college. Before she left Centreville High School, however, she found success in both. On the basketball court, Green, a standout point guard, led the Wildcats to the 2013 Concorde District championship, the program’s first since 1993. “She’s definitely the best player in the region, point guard especially,” Centreville girls’ basketball coach Tom Watson said. “Everyone knows that. Jenna has earned it. Nothing was given to her. She’s in the gym before anybody, she’s in the gym after everybody, she goes to a trainer three, four, five times a week. If you’re putting that work in, then it should come back to you.”
