She enjoyed Grace’s finest four-year stretch in team history, helping the team to 73 wins. The previous four-year record for Grace was 56 wins. During the 2013-14 campaign, Grace finished with its best record (12-6) and highest finish (fourth) in Crossroads League competition.

Additionally, Jackson’s 254 assists finished seventh all-time. She graduates with the program record for most field goals made and attempted in a season, most points in a season, and most 3-pointers made in a season.

Jackson became Grace’s all-time leading scorer with a jump shot at Taylor on Jan. 25, 2014, breaking Tracie Mezera’s previous mark of 1,632 points from 2000-04.
