Junior midfielder Jasmine Jordan (Baltimore, Md./Eastern Technical) has been named Big South Defensive Player of the Week, the conference announced on Monday. Jordan tallied six ground balls, six caused turnovers and two draw controls as High Point split two games last week.
In Sunday’s 13-11 road win over American University, Jordan posted five ground balls, five caused turnovers and a draw control. Two days prior at Navy, Jordan had a ground ball, a draw control and a caused turnover.
