Jordan Carlyle, an outside hitter on this year’s undefeated Jayhawks volleyball team, was named to the first team on the 2021 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division II Volleyball All-America Team.
The 5-11 sophomore from Ravenna, MI, becomes only the second-ever MCC volleyball player – the other being Robbie Berg in 2017 – to earn First Team All-America honors. She is the only player from a Michigan community college on this year’s Div. II All-America team.
“Over the 11 seasons that I have been at MCC, Jordyn is one of the hardest working, most driven players I have had,” said Jayhawks Head Coach Rick Rykse. “Jordyn and Megan Crowley were my team captains the past two years and they both helped provide great leadership and direction for this team.”
Carlyle led the state and was third nationally with her 5.2 points per set, while her 4.38 kills per set ranked her seventh in the nation. The Fruitport High graduate ranked among the top three statewide in hitting percentage and serving aces.
The MCC volleyball team finished 16-0 and captured both the state and regional championships titles in 2021. Seeded ninth at the NJCAA national championships in Iowa, the Jayhawks could not make the trip because of a positive COVID test.
Carlyle will compete next season at Aquinas College, where she will have three years of eligibility remaining.
