Michigan High School Field Hockey Associationskip navigation
Dynamite sweeper, Jordan Holton, has been an essential defensive backbone to the Chelsea Field Hockey team since her sophomore year. A four-year varsity letter earner, Holton’s athleticism has shone bright in track and field in the shot put and discus and basketball, as well as field hockey. This March, Holton helped her basketball team earn Chelsea High School’s first-ever Regional Championship.
In February, Holton committed to play field hockey at Ohio Wesleyan University. The All-State Team member and multi-varsity athlete is excited for the new adventure ahead, competing in the North Coast Atlantic Conference. As a Battling Bishop player, she will compete against her former teammate, Goal Keeper Payton Doan, who has committed to Kenyon College.
Strong academically, Holton has balanced her school commitments while competing in archery for seven years with her family throughout the US and has held a job as a kick boxing trainer. She played football her freshman year; however, after becoming disillusioned with the program, friends convinced her to try field hockey instead. She quickly fell in love with the game.
Her recognition as an All-State Honorable Mention Team member (2017) and All-State Second Team member (2018) may have prompted Ohio Wesleyan to reach out to her. After Holton visited the campus and spent time with the team, she knew it was the perfect next step after high school.
“Jordan's leadership, dedication, and positive attitude will be greatly missed,” said Casey Fry, Chelsea Field Hockey Varsity Coach. “Her commitment to working hard and supporting her team will be a huge asset to the program at Ohio Wesleyan.”
Holton is thrilled with the opportunity to continue playing field hockey at the collegiate level. She will also be on Wesleyan’s track team as a thrower. When she’s not on the pitch, she plans to focus her studies in the medical field.
