Rebekah Jenkins

Under the direction of first year head coach Jeff Maren, the Liberty women's tennis team enters the 2013 season with high hopes for success. Throughout the 2013 season, LibertyFlames.com will provide a look at each of the Lady Flames' players.

Rebekah Jenkins enters her junior year after posting nine singles victories during the 2012 spring slate, while competing in positions one through five. Jenkins concluded the season winning six out of her last 10 singles matches. Jenkins notched 12 wins in doubles matches, including nine victories while playing in the No. 2 position. The Florida native was named the Big South Women's Tennis Player of the Week for the week of Feb. 6-13. During the 2012 fall tournament schedule, Jenkins posted four wins, including a flight title at the Liberty Fall Classic.

From the Head Coach: "Rebekah plays an aggressive game and as a result will be a huge factor for us in both doubles and singles play.  Her energy and love for her team will also help propel us to new heights."

Off the Court with Rebekah
What is your favorite Bible verse and why?
I Cor. 1:25: "For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength."

This verse reminds me that, no matter what happens, God is always stronger than any circumstance that happens during our lives. That is reassuring to me especially when times seem unbearable, because I know my strength comes from the Lord.
