2009: Had an impressive freshman campaign, earning All-Big Sky Honorable Mention accolades for her work in the middle of the park.

Jacobsen’s goal came in just the sixth minute of the contest when she chipped a ball over the head of WSU’s netminder Rebecca Ritchie. Jacobsen’s second-career goal was also recorded on the road, as she converted on her one shot attempt of the day versus eventual BSC Tournament champions Northern Arizona (Oct. 25).
