Wehner always a winner

After stellar playing career, CCS star moves into coaching at RPI


“It’s always difficult to go from player to ex-player,” he continued. “All the focus of being a player is widened to that of being a coach. Jen has that ability to look at the game holistically. It’s going to sound like a cliche, but she seems to have that in her blood.”

As physically exhausting as her day job is, Wehner said she is no couch potato when it comes to time off. “I hate sitting around indoors,” she said. “I mean I enjoy watching movies and things, but I love being outdoors. I like hiking, camping, anything outside.” 

 Her favorite activity though is obvious: “pick up basketball with friends,” she said.

Lest anyone think Wehner is done with her time on the court, she said she is not. This month she went back to MCLA for its alumni game against the current team.  

“It was a ton of fun. Just a ton of fun. I really miss it so much,” she said. 

Wehner’s team won, as they usually do. 

CCS and MCLA had her for years, now it’s RPI’s turn for a winner.
