Former University of Louisville standout Jessica Javelet returns to head coach Michelle Finegan's coaching staff for a second season in 2012. This past summer, Javelet became the first full-time assistant coach in program history.
Javelet came to Saint Joseph's from her alma mater, Torrey Pines High School in San Diego, where she served as an assistant coach for three seasons. The Rancho Santa Fe, California native has also spent time with the United States Field Hockey Futures Program, where she has worked with the national U-14, U-16, and U-19 programs since 2004.
A decorated player at Louisville, Javelet was a First Team All-American as a senior and earned Big East Offensive Player of the Year and All-Conference First Team honors as well. As a junior, she led Division I in goals, finding the cage 30 times, and was a finalist for the Honda Award, given to the top female college athlete in 12 different sports. Javelet was also a finalist for the 2007 NCAA Woman of the Year Award. During her collegiate career, she also spent time as a member of the USA Field Hockey U-21 Junior National Team.
Off the field, Javelet was the University of Louisville's Most Outstanding Graduating Senior and was the valedictorian for the Class of 2007. Among her academic accolades, she was twice named an Academic First Team All-American; in 2007 she was awarded an NCAA Post-Graduate Scholarship and was named the Big East's Female Scholar Athlete of the Year.
After college, Javelet played for the National Field Hockey Development Team from 2006 to 2009, and spent the 2009 season with Eintracht Braunschweig in Germany. She also took part in the Women's High Performance National Championship for three seasons as part of the Mid-West squad.
Javelet graduated from Louisville in 2007 with a degree in marketing.
