SALEM, OH- Taking a look back at the high school career of Salem’s Jenna McClish- you’ll find many things she did along the way.  You’ll also find one thing she never did- and that was leave anything in the tank at the end of a game.

McClish learned, along with many of her teammates, that each player on the roster had their role.  Some were pure scorers, playmakers, defenders, rebounders, and then there was Jenna- who never found herself to be a “color inside the lines” type player, so she took everything everybody else was, added a scoop of hustle, a dash of attitude, and a whole lot of heart- tossed it in a blender, and slapped a number 12 on it, and out came the 2022 YSN Sixth Woman of the Year for Girls Basketball.

We sat down with the First Lady of “McClutch Manor” on the Campus of Salem High School for a little after-season therapy and to discuss what the last time might feel like wearing the Quaker jersey one last time.



SALEM OH- Every time Jenna McClish walks into a gym, whether it be in her home of Salem, or on the road you know you’re going to get energy, and one heck of a time watching her play. Her positivity is contagious and has spread through every member of the Lady Quakers basketball team.

Jenna enters her senior season as one of the best leaders in the area. Several coaches that have either worked with, or competed against her praise the fact that she has what it takes to be a coach if that’s something she pursues. It is because she brings the best out in everyone around her. She sets the standard with her work ethic, and then the players around her follow suit.

Jenna is one of many reasons that the Salem Quakers are off to a fantastic start this season. They sit at just one loss, and are at the top of the YSN Power Rankings. They are also in the middle of a three way tie for first in the EBC.

Anthony Hartwig, and Ty Bartell had the chance to chat with Jenna McClish this week after she won Baird Brothers Big Dog Of The Valley. The Salem community backed her up, and she talks about how much that means to her. She also talks about her basketball journey, and so much more.
