Jordan Sandrini Commits To Siena
Jordan Sandrini of Adna, WA has verbally committed to play softball at Siena College beginning with the 2013 season.
If the name sounds familiar, it should. Jordan is of course the sister of Saints' star pitcher/outfielder/designated player Jessika-Jo Sandrini. But don't get the idea that she was recruited by Siena because of that fact --- Jordan is a great player in her own right. The two time All-Washington State First Teamer is an outstanding shortstop, who can also play third base. She hit .370 with 24 RBIs in '11, and like her sister, led Adna High School to a state championship. Also like her sister, she is very athletic; an all-star volleyball player and basketball player as well. Jordan plays travel ball with the Northwest (formerly Washington) Sidewinders.
I think it goes without saying that Siena coach Bill Lajeunesse is thrilled with this signing. Certainly Jordan was interested in reuniting with her sister on the field, but again, Siena did not sign her for J-J's sake. But it sure was a great fringe benefit of the previous Sandrini signing!
