Jenn Lawrence completed her first season as video coordinator and operations assistant with the Youngstown State women's basketball program in 2017-18.
In her first season, YSU earned its third postseason tournament berth in four years by playing in the Women’s Basketball Invitational. The postseason became a reality as the Penguins won nine of their final 11 regular-season games, including six straight on the road. The strong close to the season saw YSU’s RPI jump 113 spots.
A familiar face on the Penguins' bench, Lawrence also served as a student manager and basketball operations intern in 2015-16 and 2016-17. In her new capacity, she coordinates video exchange, supervises student managers, prepares for practice, serves as the contact for community service projects and oversees the ball girls program.
In her previous position as a Penguin, she helped with film exchange, training team managers, setting up practices and games, supervising ball girls and assisting with visiting team travel. She also assisted with office work, team travel and summer camps.
Lawrence is a graduate of the University of Mount Union, where she was very active with the Alpha Phi Omega service organization. While at UMU, Lawrence served a three-month internship in ticket sales with the WNBA's Washington Mystics.
