NORFOLK, Va. -- Old Dominion junior Sherida Triggs (Norcross, Ga.) and sophomore T.J. Jordan (Portsmouth, Va.) were named Second Teamm All-State by the Virginia Sports Information Directors Association.

Triggs, a 6-1 forward, averaged a team second best 11.4 points and a team leading 7.2 rebounds in her third season with the Lady Monarchs. A Second Team All-CAA selection, she performed six double-doubles, more than any other teammate this season. Among her season highs include a 22-point career night at George Mason and a season-high 13 boards in the regular season home finale against William & Mary. She shot a team and league-best .573 percent from the field and also lead the Lady Monarchs with 36 blocks, and 43 steals.

Jordan, a Second Team All-CAA selection and CAA Tournament Most Outstanding Player, led her team with 13.4 points per game and dished out an average of 2.3 assists per game. Nationally, she ranked sixth in the country average 3.0 three-pointers made a game. She reset Aubrey Eblin's single season-three pointer attempt mark with 248 attempts and was just five three's shy of resetting Eblin's three-pointers made mark with 93 treys. Jordan ranked 13th in scoring among her CAA peers and finished the year 15th in field goal percentage (.408) and fourth in three-point field goal percentage, (.375).
