Jenna Beattie becomes Caledonia Pride’s first new arrival ahead of the 2019/20 season.
Jenna joins Pride from Falkirk Fury, where she played throughout her childhood. She was part of Fury’s 2017 SBC Playoff winning team, and has also featured for Glasgow University between 2013 and 2015. At International level, Jenna represented Scotland at both U16 and U18 age groups.
Looking ahead to the new season, Jenna is ready to get started with her new club:
“Basketball has always been my passion which is why I knew I had to embrace this opportunity and put my all into the it. I am ready to put all my energy, effort and determination into Pride and push my performances to a new high. We, as a team, have a great talent base and I am confident we will lift our performances further this season.”
Head Coach Bart Sengers is fully aware of what Jenna can bring to his squad:
“After Jenna expressed interest in playing for Pride halfway during last season we agreed to have her join practices to see how she would fit in. We wanted to see how committed she was as well as how she would adjust to a different way of playing. She has done very well and has been a pleasure to work with. She showed a lot of drive to improve and I believe she can make a valuable contribution to the team this season. She was a dominant player for Fury last season in the Scottish league and it will be interesting to see what she can do in her first year in the WBBL. It surely will be a big adjustment but I am sure Jenna will give all she has to the team and make contributions on and off the court.”
