Heidi Jordan Joins Akron Racers Coaching Staff

Heidi Jordan will join the Akron Racers as the assistant coach this summer and manage not only the largest, but the most diverse group of pitchers in the NPF.
Jordan led Highland Community College (Kan.) to four consecutive NCJAA national tournament appearances.  Jordan comes to Akron with an impressive resume at the junior college level with HCC. During her nine seasons as the head coach of the Scotties, Jordan collected a 325-191 record.
The Eastern Division of the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference recognized Jordan as the Coach of the Year in 2006, after the Scotties used a 13-30 campaign in 2005 as fuel for a 33-23 record the next season.
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 career at HCC, Jordan helped her student-athletes become NCJAA players of the week, earn All-America honors and move on to play at NCAA Division I programs.
Jordan’s success with the Scotties doesn’t stop there, though. She is a 2000 graduate of HCC, where she was a four-time conference and regional selection as a pitcher and designated hitter.
She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Education from Missouri Western State University in 2002, but quickly returned to the Scotties as the assistant softball coach in 2003.
