POTH -- After four years of unparalleled success on the court, Poth High School senior and standout athlete Jordan Kotara is looking forward to a college career as a member of the University of Texas at San Antonio Roadrunners volleyball team.

Together with two other teammates, Jordan signed her letter of intent to UTSA on Nov. 9. The senior had a variety of options, including Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and Texas State University, but said UTSA was her “pick from the start.”

“I really like the environment there, and feel that there is a lot of opportunity based on the school’s growth,” she said. “I felt very comfortable there.”

Jordan said she is looking forward to being in college, and in “seeing what is out there,” as she starts her “new life.” She isn’t sure what she will major in, but understands she has time to figure that out.

She said she will miss her family and friends, but also believes she will miss the community of Poth in general.

“It is such a tight community here,” she said. “Everyone is so supportive of each other.”

As this newspaper hits the stands, Jordan and her Pirette teammates stand just two wins away from another state championship. While she was happy to take a little time out to sign with UTSA, her volleyball focus remains nearly entirely upon winning the state title.

“We are very focused on winning the title,” she said. “We talk about it every day, before and after every practice and every game.”

Still, Jordan finds time for the little things, and always remembers to have fun.

“I’m always looking to have fun on the court,” she said. “Anytime I’m out there, I want to laugh and have fun. We work hard, but it’s still gotta be fun.”

While she is on the court having fun, Jordan is also getting the job done. She leads her team in kills with 320, averaging nearly 3 kills per game. She also has 209 digs on the year, to go along with 42 service aces and 68 blocks.
