Jordyn was my daughter Kaleigh's teamate until Kaleigh broke her knee (to put it lightly) and we pulled her out of the sport. We live in Novi and Kaleigh is in Northville schools. Kaleigh was in the sport for 10 years and used to work out on the same team as Jordyn for like 25 hours a week. Jordyn always has been an incredible person and an amazingly focused athlete. She is so deserving of this medal! Will try to get out to see her while she is here!
