Midwestern State senior Kiara Jordan made history Wednesday as she was named a Daktronics second-team All American by the Collegiate Sports Information Directors of America.
Jordan becomes just the second player in program history to earn second-team honors joining Alaina Albrecht, who gained NAIA All America second-team accolades in 1990.
Albrecht also earned NAIA honorable mention in 1989 at outside hitter and was also an AVCA honorable mention All America in 1990.
Setter Jeannie Cash also gained NAIA All America honorable mention in 1990, while outside hitter Mandy Pinkerton earned the same honor in 1995.
Jordan is the first player to earn All-America mention during MIdwestern's NCAA era which began 1996.
The Gilmer, Texas native completed a stellar career by hauling in numerous accolades.
Jordan earned Daktronics All-South Central Region first-team honors and was an AVCA all-region honorable mention this season as she was named LSC LIbero of the Year for the second straight campaign.
Jordan ranked sixth in the nation averaging 6.03 digs per set while setting the program's single-season standard with 687 digs. Her 1,936 digs rate second on MSU's career annals trailing only former teammate Shea Velasquez.
She notched 20-or-more digs in 14 matches this season while posting a season high with 40 against Tarleton State on Sep. 24 then matched the total against Incarnate Word on Oct. 20.
Midwestern State closed the 2011 season with a 15-16 mark advancing to its fifth straight LSC postseason championship tournament.
