WINTERVILLE-Pitt Community College softball standout Nicole
Jordan, whose.589 batting average in 2007 ranks fifth all-time among
NJCAA Division I hitters, will continue her softball career at East
Carolina University next season.
PCC softball coach Junior Bailey announced on May 22 that Jordan had signed with the Pirates, meaning she will follow in the footsteps of
former Bulldog Stacey Andrews, who wrapped up her ECU softball career earlier this month.
Bailey said the Pirates are getting a talented, coachable player and
an outstanding individual in Jordan, who was an All-Region X Conference
First Team selection in each of her two seasons at Pitt.
Jordan, who signed with Pitt in 2006 out of Jamesville High School,
said she has always dreamed of playing Division I softball. She added
that playing close to home Jamesville is 40 minutes away from
ECU will make the experience all the better.
As a PCC freshman, Jordan made an immediate impact by going
63-for-107 in 39 games to lead the country in batting average.
Though her average dropped in her second season with Pitt, Jordan
still batted a solid .307 (43-for-140) with 34 runs batted in. She added
27 stolen bases and a .941 fielding average.
