“I am extremely grateful to have this opportunity here at Presbyterian and excited to work alongside of Coach Steelman, Coach Buckland, and the rest of the women's basketball program,” said Hiatt. “I am ready to get to work and prepare for a great season ahead!”
Hiatt spent a year as a Graduate Assistant for the Indianapolis women’s basketball team. While there she was responsible for many aspects of the program, including logistics, academics, camps, and recruiting.
Hiatt was a four letterman at Lenoir-Rhyne where she served as a captain for her last two seasons. The team, ranked in the USA Top 25 in 2013, earned a bid to the NCAA tournament in 2013 and 2014. In 2014 Lenoir-Rhyne earned South Atlantic Co-Championship honors and hosted the NCAA Regional as a #1 seed.
“I'm so happy that Jordan is joining our staff,” said Steelman. She'll bring a great deal of energy and enthusiasm to our program, so she's a perfect fit as we continue the growth of our team. She wants to work and she wants to learn, and that's very important for her as she begins her coaching career. Her experience as a graduate assistant under Kristen Drabyn was tremendous, and we feel fortunate that she chose to join our journey here at PC.”
Hiatt earned All-Freshman Team honors in 2013, and was a member of the Dean’s List from 2014-2016, and on the South Atlantic Conference Commissioners Honor Roll for all four years. Hiatt was a member of the Arktos Chapter of Mortar Board Senior Honor Society where she served at Vice President, a member of Chi Alpha Sigma Student-Athlete Honor Society where she served as Secretary, and was a women’s basketball representative for the Student Athletic Advisory Committee.
A native of Mount Airy, NC, Hiatt graduated from Lenoir-Rhyne in 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in Sports Management and a minor in Business.
