Plymouth Whitemarsh High School senior Jordyn Thomas has signed a letter of intent to play NCAA Division II basketball for Thomas Jefferson University.
The power forward is a four-year starter and one of the top 25 all-time scorers for the Colonials, with 508 points and 326 rebounds heading into her senior year.
“She’s been a rock and a joy to coach for four years,” said PWHS Head Coach Dan Dougherty. “She’s a very vocal leader on the floor, and we’re excited to see her go to Jefferson. Our program has a legacy at Jefferson. We’re always excited when the kids stay local, so we can keep seeing them play.”
Jordyn was named All-Conference her junior year and considers the Colonials’ dominance as back-to-back conference champions a highlight in her high school career. She started playing basketball in third grade and joined an AAU team in sixth grade.
“Basketball has given me an outlet for my competitiveness, and it has always been my first love. I look forward to going to practices and games at the end of the day,” said Jordyn. “Basketball has also given me some of the best sisters I could ever ask for. The team turns into a family.”
Jordyn will be majoring in Health Sciences at Jefferson.
