Hunger To Excel Leads Blue Chip DeFalco to LSU

Jenna DeFalco was interested in all aspects of the LSU campus, but the athletic nutrition facility really captured her attention. DeFalco embraced a vegan diet last year after four years of being a vegetarian. Having the right food available to eat in college was a major consideration for her performance and lifestyle.

"I never really liked the taste of meat and got kind of grossed out with cheese, dairy and everything once I watched The Game Changers,” said DeFalco, referring to the documentary film about the benefits of plant-based eating. “I went really strict after that and decided to be fully plant-based. I feel so much stronger on the court and way faster and I recover super quick. It's really helped me a lot."

From the court to the classroom to the kitchen, DeFalco felt confident LSU could meet her needs. The blue chip rising senior from Tustin, California committed to LSU co-head coaches Julia and Michael Sell last month.

"I thought LSU was the perfect fit for me. The coaches have a lot of experience and I connected with both of them immediately,” she said. “I built a strong relationship with them and they see the same vision I have with my tennis and really care about my tennis and me as a person. They made me feel like family and the girls on the team welcomed me immediately."
