From Shorter University Athletics:
Jordan McCarver, a 5’7″ guard is the latest signee among an impressive 2016-17 signing class for CoachVic Mitchell‘s Shorter Lady Hawks.
When McCarver began looking for a school to continue both her athletic and academic college career, she fell in love with Shorter and called her decision to pick the Rome, Georgia school, “an easy one.” “Coach Mitchell, coach Lee and the girls were so nice. I cannot wait to take the court with them,” she stated.
Most recently, she played two years at Snead State Community College under head coach Jarrod Plummer. This past season, the 3-point shooting guard led the team with 35 conversions from beyond the arc, while helping the Parsons finish with a 21-12 overall record. As a sophomore, she started all 33 games for SSCC and averaged 4.9 points per game.
McCarver played prep basketball with current Lady Hawks standout Taylor Adams at Section High School in Section, Alabama. In high school, McCarver won a 2A State Championship as part of the Lions program and received first team All-State honors.
Head coach Vic Mitchell stated, “Jordan is an excellent three pointer shooter who we think will help us be a more balanced team on the offensive end of the floor.”
In the classroom, McCarver has excelled. She was a member of two Snead Community College honor society chapters, Sigma Kappa Delta and Phi Theta Kappa. Additionally, she received recognition on the President’s List and as a National Junior College Athletic Association Academic All-American. According to Mitchell, “She has excelled in the classroom throughout her high school and college career so far. We are excited that Jordan will be joining us in the fall.”
