Jordan Hill '09 enters her first season as the head track and field coach and her third season overall at Baldwin Wallace University in 2019.
Hill returns to BW after spending two seasons as an assistant coach at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. During her time there, the Emory women notched two separate top-10 finishes at an NCAA Division III Championship meet. Hill was also most recently named the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) South/Southeast Region Women’s Outdoor Assistant Coach of the Year. She primarily focused on sprints, hurdles, relays and jumps for the Eagles while also serving as the main recruiter for those event groups. Hill's other responsibilities included coordinating travel logistics and assisting as the meet director for the Emory Invitational and Emory Classic, which brought in over 900 participants to each event the last two years.
Prior to her time at Emory, Hill served as an assistant coach at Allegheny (Pa.) College from August 2014 until September 2015, when she was promoted to interim head coach for both cross country and track and field. During her tenure as interim head coach, both cross country teams won the North Coast Athletic Conference championship while the track and field teams saw points scored in every event group at the conference championships.
Hill’s first stop at BW was as an assistant coach from January 2013 to August 2014, where she oversaw the training and development of the sprints, hurdles and relays, including the 2014 NCAA Division III National Champion in the men’s 100- and 200-meter dashes. Before returning to her alma mater, however, Hill was a graduate assistant coach at Bluffton University from August 2009 to May 2012.
Her various coaching accomplishments include mentoring 15 All-Americans, over 20 conference event champions, more than 50 All-Region athletes and two individual national champions. Hill also holds a USA Track & Field Level 1 Coaching Certification.
As a student-athlete at BW, Hill had an immensely successful career, earning several All-Ohio Athletic Conference and All-Ohio honors and contributing to three OAC team titles. During her senior season, she earned the Paul “Sparky” Adams Most Outstanding Female Athlete award as well as the BW Most Outstanding Sprinter Award.
Hill earned a Bachelor of Arts in communications from BW in 2009 and then went on to obtain a Master of Business Administration from Bluffton in 2012.
