Irvine, California — Add Jenna Seibold ’20 to the ever-growing list of successful skaters to wear the red, white, and blue of the Lawrence Academy Spartans.
Seibold, a junior on the LA girls’ ice hockey team, participated in the “Chipotle USA Hockey National Championship” last week in Irvine, California and brought home a title; this time wearing the maroon and gold of the Boston Junior Eagles.
Caught in-between classes here on the elm tree-shaded hillside, Seibold spoke about her team’s accomplishment and her own superlatives away from LA’s Grant rink.

“Being a half-season team is tough just because we don’t see each other as much as other teams,” explained Seibold, “but playing in the ISL helped us all stay ready to go over the winter which was big.”
