KIN graduate student and Gopher hoops captain featured in local paper
Jackie Voigt, a master's student in applied kinesiology and alumni of the undergraduate sport management program, was featured in the South Washington County Bulletin regarding her women's basketball career at the U of MN, where Voigt has had a very positive experience.
"I have no regrets picking the University of Minnesota. I'm glad I made this decision," Voigt said. "I've had some great teammates and great coaches. I've gotten a great education and have graduated with my degree - which was my No. 1 priority. I think I've grown in a lot of different areas outside of basketball, too."
A six-one forward, Voigt is a three-year letterwinner and 2011-12 team captain for the Gophers. Thus far this season, she is averaging 5.0 points and 4.9 rebounds per contest.
Voigt's former high school coach, Stephanie Tolkinen regards her as the "the hardest worker" she's ever come across. Tolkinen also notes, "she wants to be the best at everything she does, but she keeps a good balance between her family, her life and basketball."
