Seward County welcomes a new assistant coach

Emilyn Jordan is the new assistant volleyball coach for the Seward County Saints. Jordan is 25 years old, but is already an experienced volleyball coach and plans on bringing her knowledge to the Lady Saints. Jordan was born and raised in Sweeny, Texas. She has one younger sister who is 22 years old and lives in Dallas, Texas. Jordan played volleyball from seventh grade through her senior year in college and won a multitude of awards during that time. She played college volleyball at Southeastern Louisiana University for four years. Jordan graduated from Southeastern Louisiana in ’09 with a bachelor’s of science degree. This is Jordan’s first year coaching at Seward County Community College/ Area Technical School. She has had two other coaching jobs before coming to SCCC. “My first coaching job was in Baton Rouge, La., at the Christian Life Academy High School,” Jordan said. After being there for a semester, she moved on to be the assistant coach for Sewanee: University of the South Tennessee. While there, she helped the team by quadrupling its wins in the 2010-2011 season. Her last and final coaching job, before coming to SCCC, was in Brazoria, Texas, at Absolute Volleyball Academy. Jordan has enough years of volleyball experience to know what it takes to run a team. “I want to help this team become even more successful and help it go on to the national tournament,” Jordan said. Jordan recently coached the Lady Saints to victory Sept. 12 as Seward played Garden City and Redlands at home.
