Jordan named A-10 rookie of the week

Following a standout weekend at the UNC Classic in Chapel Hill, Charlotte 49ers freshman sprinter Sam Jordan was named Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week.

Jordan finished third in the 60m dash and then later finished sixth in the 200m dash at the meet. The Wilmington native owns the top time in the Atlantic 10 this season in the 60m dash with his 6.81 second time.

Earlier in the season, Jordan ran the team’s fastest 200m dash time (a 21.99 second 1/8th of a mile at the Appalachian State Meet in December).
