Softball's Patterson In Homecoming Court
The Tuscaloosa native is one of five women on the 2013 court. She was to be honored during Friday night's pep rally on The University Quad when the Homecoming queen was to be announced. The queen and her court will then be honored at halftime of the UA-Georgia State football game.
Patterson, who was nominated by the Alabama Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, earned her spot on the court in a campus-wide vote. The senior catcher is the first member of the softball team to earn a place on the homecoming court, and is the first female athlete to do so since rower Erika Baranek in 2011.
"We're very proud of Jordan and all she has accomplished," UA Coach Patrick Murphy said. "I think it speaks volumes about who she is as a person and what other student-athletes think of her that she was the athletics department's nominee and I think it shows the impact that she's had on campus as a whole that she earned a place on the court."
A member of the Tide's 2012 NCAA Championship team and the 2011 and 2012 Southeastern Conference squads, Patterson is a three-year member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll and is a member of XXXI, The University of Alabama's elite women's honor society.
