Jordan Gets 400 Softball Wins at Highland
Heidi Jordan, head softball coach at Highland Community College, achieved 400 career coaching wins with the College with her the Scotties’ victory in the first game of a double header with Cloud County on Wednesday. The follow-up win in the second game gets her started on the next win level. Jordan is in her eleventh season as the head coach at Highland; she is assisted by her husband, Scott.
Jordan, who is a Highland alumnae, graduating in 2000, started the new millennium off right as she was named All Conference and All Region as a pitcher and designated hitter. After completing her degree at Highland, Jordan received her bachelor’s degree from Missouri Western State University in 2002. She quickly returned to the Scotties as the assistant softball coach in 2003 before assuming the role as head coach in 2004.
Jordan has been highly successful with the Scotties, having reached the 350 win level in March last year. She took the Scotties to five consecutive NJCAA National Tournaments. Her colleagues in the Eastern Division of the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference recognized her as the Coach of the Year in 2006 when her Scotties achieved a 33-23 record after going 13-30 the year before.
The Scotties found their place in the HCC record book under Jordan’s direction in 2012, as they set a record for the most single-season wins in school history, 48, and recorded the longest win streak with 25 straight victories. During her coaching career at Highland, Jordan has helped her student-athletes become NJCAA Players of the Week, earn All-American honors, and move on to play at NCAA Division I programs.
