“When I found out I was surprised but it was an amazing feeling,” Zinke said. “I feel very honored for having my jersey retired. I think it shows that I am a hard worker and through hard work comes success.”
Zinke’s jersey will be displayed in the Hall of Fame in the school’s new athletic complex.
“Jackie has meant a great deal to the Mater Dei High School girls soccer program,” head coach Matty West said. “She has been 4 year starter leading the Monarchs to two CIF Championship games while winning one this year. Her determination and hard-work have created a competitive environment for other players to thrive. I am extremely proud of the Jackie's contributions on and off the field.”
