Glenville, W.Va. – The Glenville State College softball team and head coach Mandy Sansbury are pleased to announce the addition of two outstanding student-athletes, Jordan Colliflower and Mckenzie Edmonds, who will don the Blue and White and join the Lady Pioneers in the 2014-2015 academic year.
“I am very excited to coach these two outstanding student-athletes,” Coach Sansbury said. “These two individuals both possess a wealth of speed and competitiveness. Both have demonstrated the versatility to play several positions and play them well. Most important, they are committed to excellence on the field and in the classroom.”
Colliflower, a Huntington, WV native, is a skilled left-handed athlete who brings both speed and range to the outfield as well as exceptional bat control to the plate. She has been a vital part of a highly successful program at Cabell Midland High School, helping the Knights post a 78-14 record during her first three years of high school. For her prep efforts, she has been recognized as both 2nd Team All-MSAC and Honorable Mention All-State during her junior season.
In addition to her successful prep career, Colliflower has had tremendous success in travel-ball with both the Mountain Thunder and the WV Dusters. In 2009 she was part of the WFC World Series championship team and in 2013 helped her team earn the Triple Crown Sports 18-U Gold National Championship.
Colliflower maintains a 4.0 grade point average at Cabell Midland High School and has been awarded the Hidden Promise scholarship for her academic success. Jordan is the daughter of Eric Colliflower and the late Stacie Colliflower.
Mckenzie Edmonds, a Clendenin, WV native, is a tenacious utility player that brings versatility and a great field presence to the Pioneers. Edmonds has been a staple for the Herbert Hoover softball program, which has compiled 42-15 record in the past two seasons. As a sophomore, she was a 2nd Team All-Cardinal Conference selection for her prep efforts. As a junior she was recognized as 1st Team All-Cardinal Conference, 2nd Team All-Kanawha Valley, and Special Honorable Mention All-State.
Edmonds, like Colliflower has been a vital part in the success of her travel-ball organization. She is also a member of the WV Dusters organization and helped lead her team to the 2013 Triple Crown Sports 18-U Gold National Championship.
Edmonds is a National Honor Society member and has been awarded the Hidden Promise scholarship for her academic achievements. Mckenzie is the daughter of T.J. and Anita Edmonds.
