Jordan Wheeler Adds Another Notch to Career Blue Ridge Softball Pitching Belt

Shortly after winning the WallStudz Player of the Month for her performance in April, one could only wonder what junior Jordan Wheeler could accomplish next.

After all, she already holds the Blue Ridge softball record for career wins. She threw a perfect game in 2010 against Peoria Menual.

Prior to today's Heart of Illinois Conference Tournament game against Ridgeview, however, there was one seasonlong goal that eluded her: another no-hitter. Like many other achievements in her career, that goal has been accomplished, as she no-hit the Mustangs en route to the Lady Knights' 13-0 five-inning win.

"It feels really good," Wheeler said. "I'm just glad I got one. I had one last year, so then I wanted to keep it going."

For someone with lofty goals on the diamond, however, she says she has yet to look into attending the more prestigious colleges in the near future. So far, she is looking at Heartland, Parkland, ICC and Lincoln Land Community College.

"Next year, I'm probably going to look more into bigger schools and stuff," Wheeler said.

For now, however, she says she is glad to be pitching for Blue Ridge High School.

"I'm just really excited that my team is there backing me up and helping me," Wheeler said.
