TOMS RIVER, N.J. > SOFTBALL
Jordan, a senior righthander at Toms River East High, fanned all 21 batters she faced in a 9--0 win over Manchester High in the Ocean County Tournament to become the first pitcher in the event's 33-year history to throw a perfect game while whiffing every batter. She followed that up with a one-hit, 6--0 victory over Brick Memorial, striking out 15. Through Sunday, Jordan had 193 K's to go with a 0.65 ERA. She will pitch for Boston College.
LUBBOCK, TEXAS > TRACK AND FIELD
Davis, a 6'3", 225-pound junior at McMurry University in Abilene, Texas, broke his own school shot put record by 3½ feet with a throw of 67' 4¼" at the Heartland/McMurry Invitational, the top collegiate mark this season. His heave earned him automatic entry into the U.S. championships in June. Davis won the NCAA Division III shot put title last season to help McMurry, which is in its first year of transitioning to Division II, earn the D-III championship.
TYLER, TEXAS > GYMNASTICS
Johnson, a junior at Florida, won the uneven parallel bars (9.950) and came in second in the vault (9.900) at the Division I team championships to lead the Gators to their first national title, 197.575--197.375 over Oklahoma. The next day she finished first in the bars once again for the individual title (9.9125). Johnson, who suffered a lower-back stress fracture earlier this season, sat out eight meets before returning to help Florida advance at regionals last month.
