MOUNT VERNON – Jenna Kessenich, a 5’10” senior from Duluth, Ga. (Central Gwinnett High School) and a member of the Brewton-Parker College (BPC) women’s volleyball team, recorded her 1,000th “kill” in a home match against Fort Valley State University Sept. 11.
The term “kill” is used in volleyball when a point results from a player’s hit or “spike” over the net. Kessenich’s “kill” came in the first game of the match. When Kessenich reached her milestone, play was immediately stopped and she was given a volleyball that was signed by all of her teammates.
“This is something I have always wanted to obtain. I made it one of the goals for my volleyball career,” said Kessenich. “It was definitely exciting to finally get it.”
Kessenich’s younger sister Sara is a junior at BPC and one of Jenna’s teammates.
BPC lost the match to Fort Valley State University, 3-2 (32-30, 31-29, 26-30, 29-31,11-15).
