Biography

A bolter in the Australian Opals squad for the 2012 London Olympic Games, Jarry proved her worth on the biggest stage, helping the team win the bronze medal.

Another AIS product to make it all the way to Opals selection, Jarry made a significant impact in her one season stay in Canberra before joining the Bulleen Boomers under Tom Maher. This resulted in the club’s first WNBL title in 2011 and saw Jarry get picked up with the 18th pick of the 2011 WNBA Draft.

Her whirlwind rise was capped off with Jarry forcing her way into the Opals team for the Olympic Games, with London not expected to be her only appearance in the world’s biggest sporting festival. Jarry proved her worth at those Olympic Games, providing rebounding and active defensive pressure on the biggest stage in basketball.

A strong second half of the WNBL season on her return from London caught the attention of her WNBA team, with Minnesota signing the talented forward for the 2013 season. A memorable rookie campaign for the Lynx saw Jarry become just the eighth Australian to win a WNBA Championship.

Injury ruined her 2013/14 WNBL season, restricting the forward to just three games, but the young forward is bouncing back to full fitness ahead of the FIBA World Championship for Women.

Recovering from a remarkable 18 months of injuries, Jarry earned a place in the Opals team which won the 2015 FIBA Oceania Championship against New Zealand.

Jarry made the move to new WNBL team, South East Queensland in 2015, using her vast experience to lead the team into the finals before being named in the Opals team for Rio 2016.

Moving back overseas in 2016, Jarry is playing for Lattes Montpellier in France where she he helping the defending champions compete in both the French LBC and the Euroleague. Using her experience obtained by representing Australia in the 2016 Olympic Games, Jarry is continually growing her game and is set to be an Opal's star of the future.
