Kylie Jordan capped an impressive first season at The Madeira School with a record-breaking performance at the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association State Swimming Championships.
Jordan, a Leesburg resident, swam to gold medals in the 200-yard individual medley and the 100 butterfly at the state competition, held Feb. 15-16 at the Collegiate School Aquatic Center in Richmond.
The Madeira freshman's time of 54.50 seconds in the 100 butterfly set a VISAA record and qualifies as an automatic High School All-American cut. Jordan's time of 2:04.21 in the 200 IM also set a VISAA record.
For her efforts, Jordan was named the VISAA Female Swimmer of the Year.
"There were so many great competitors at VISAA States. I was just really honored to be recognized, as a freshman, with this award," Jordan said. "Coach Rod Montrie has been so great this season and I am happy to be able to bring this award back to Madeira for Coach Montrie and the Madeira swim team."
Jordan, also an academic standout with a 4.0 GPA, helped a pair of Madeira relay teams place in the top five at the state meet in addition to her individual success.
"I was just really excited for my first high school state meet," Jordan stated. "I was hoping to swim well and score points for Madeira."
Jordan, who has swam competitively for nearly five years, also competes for SNOW Swimming and the Red Rock Rockets of the Old Dominion Swim League. She holds several ODSL event records in the ages 13-14 division.
