Jennah Savage is new to St. Thomas’ Episcopal School.
One place you typically find STE senior Jennah Savage is the basketball court practicing her mid-range and three point shots. Jennah began playing basketball in third grade and became more serious about it in middle school. The feeling that she gets when she steps onto the court ready to play shooting guard is what keeps her going.
“I feel so free and truly at my happiest when I'm playing, and honestly I would say that basketball has been my peace and stress relief overall,” Jennah said.
Over the years, Jennah has had so many memorable moments, but the one that stands out the most was a game at her former high school against North Shore High School. Going into the game, she was nervous as it was her first year on varsity basketball.
“When I went into the game, all my fears went away and I ended up scoring 18 points. It was probably one of the best games I had that season, and from then on I started playing with the same energy and intensity,” Jennah commented.
Jennah’s transition from a large public high school to St. Thomas’ Episcopal this year has been smooth, although she misses many of her friends.
“It helped a lot that the other students are very friendly and welcoming, they have made my transition so much easier,” Jennah said.
Since her freshman year, Jennah has been training and working to reach her goal of playing basketball in college.
“Getting the privilege to be able to play a sport I'm extremely in love with and passionate about for four more years would be absolutely amazing,” Jennah said. St. Thomas’ Episcopal is so happy to have Jennah as an amazing addition to the Women’s Basketball team.
