Jordan soccer wins Athletes of the Week

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ga. -

The Jordan Red Jacket soccer program is no stranger to the postseason, and after making another trip in 2014, they are the latest WRBL Headquarter Nissan Athletes of the Week.

The boys finished the region slate with a 3-3 record, and hit the road for a first-round matchup with Calhoun on Thursday.

“I feel great,” said Javante West. “My team feels wonderful. They’re excited. We’re ready to go out there and compete, win, play hard. Go out there and show them something.”

The Red Jackets did run into a buzzsaw. Calhoun is the top seed out of region 7, and shut out Jordan Thursday night. Still, head coach Jon Lee was proud of his team.

“The thing I like most about my team is they’re determined to win and always get better,” he said. “With this group of guys, they very rarely miss practice and they’re always out here ready to go, and wanting to get better.”

The success isn’t just limited to the boys. The girls won the region 5-AA championship, giving them the top seed.

“We’re excited,” said head coach Sheryl Green. “We play on Friday, Dade County in the first round of the state tournament. It should be a good battle, and I’m looking forward to my kids playing well and representing Columbus and Muscogee County and, most importantly, Jordan.”
