Nothing short of excellence.
My name is Jordan Michaela Norwood and I am a dual enrollment student. I'm currently 14-years old and I attend Lake County Virtual School for High School and Lake Sumter State College for academics. For athletics, I participate on the Lake Minneola High School girls track and field team. During the summer months, I compete in track and field as a multi-event athlete. I am a State, National and AAU Jr. Olympic medalist who enjoys competing. Earlier this year (Jan 2019) I was in a very nasty automobile accident and one doctor told me that I would never be able to compete again. My mother changed my doctors and they worked with me through the end of April and cleared me to compete in Javelin for the FL State Middle School Championship, where I threw 104' and won the bronze medal with less than two weeks of preparation. Two months later I won silver medal at the AAU National Championship and qualified to compete in the Jr. Olympics for both Javelin and 200m hurdles. My sports physicians state that I can return to pole vault in 2020 and my goal is to top my last jump prior to the accident, which was 9' during practice. Because I'm dual-enrolled, I'm slated to graduate earlier than expected for both high school and college. Knowing this, I must work harder to improve my competition numbers, which is my goal for this 2019-2020 outdoor season.
