Awards & Honors

  • First-Team Academic All-Big 12 (2009, 2010)
  • Eight-Time Big 12 Commissioner's Honor Roll (Fall 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010; Spring 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011)

2010 (Senior)
Jaclyn White saved her best year for 2010, as she tied for fourth on the team with 10 points by tallying four goals and two assists. White was one of the key reserves off of the Huskers’ bench and appeared in all 21 games, while also earning three starts in early September.

White scored her first goal of the season in Nebraska’s 3-0 shutout of Arizona on Sept. 10, while also notching goals against Oklahoma State, Colorado and Missouri. Her first-half goal against the Tigers gave NU a 3-1 lead and boosted the Huskers to their first Big 12 Tournament win since 2005.


A strong utility player, White played goalkeeper for 49 minutes against No. 6 Texas A&M. The senior was suberb between the posts, stopping three Aggie shots and only allowing one goal despite no previous experience at the position.

2009 (Junior)

White worked her way into the NU rotation to see increased playing time as a junior, appearing in 16-of- 20 games for the Huskers.

She had a career-best day Sept. 18 vs. South Dakota when she scored on a penalty kick and added an assist to total three points in Nebraska's 9-0 win. White also had an assist against Green Bay to finish the season with four points. All three shots taken in 2009 were on goal.

2008 (Sophomore)
White appeared in nine games during the 2008 season, helping Nebraska to a 4-5 record in games she appeared. White contributed in Husker wins over UAB, Oakland, Texas Tech and Iowa State.

2007 (Freshman)
After battling an early season knee injury, White worked her way into the lineup in NU's seventh contest of the year. She notched just three shots in her first five appearances, but exploded for six shots against Lamar on Oct. 12, including four on goal, and her first career goal.

Her performance earned the Long Beach, Calif., native her first career start the following Sunday against Texas Tech. She notched two more shots on goal against the Red Raiders and went on to finish the season with 18 shots, directing nine on goal. White appeared in 12 total games for NU.

High School
White joined Nebraska from Bishop Montgomery High School, where she was a six-time scholar athlete.

White had an especially explosive senior season, scoring 11 goals in 15 games and leading the team to the Del Rey League Division 4 finals. White continued to excel in the postseason, scoring an additional six goals in five games and playing a part with either a goal or an assist in all but one of the goals that led Bishop to a second-place finish. Her stellar performance earned White first-team Del Rey League and first-team all-area honors.

As impressive academically as she is athletically, White graduated summa cum laude from Bishop Montgomery and spent seven semesters on the principal's honor roll. In 2007, she was named the Bishop Montgomery Athlete of the Year.

Other Information
In 2005, White was named the Palos Verde Soccer Club Most Valuable Player, as well as being a 2006- 07 first-team all-league selection. Also in 2007, White helped the Breakers to the California Soccer League Gold Championship title.

A talented athlete, White also competed in cross country, track and basketball and was named Bishop Montgomery's 2007 cross country MVP.

Personal Information
White is the daughter of Gary and Carol White, and was born Nov. 26, 1988, in Long Beach. Jaclyn has one brother, Matthew. Jaclyn is a business administration major.

Worth Noting
