Mortimer Jordan HS: Softball Powerhouse
The remarkable story of a great high school softball team
Published: March/April 2010

The Power Factor
This remarkable turnaround story started when Rickman met BFS Clinician Lance Neven at a convention held by the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD). Rickman said she "picked his brain and drove him crazy the whole week", and that as a result she became so enthusiastic about BFS that she brought out Lance to her school for a clinic. Since then, Neven has been mentoring her to find ways to continue to improve her program.
In addition to coaching the softball team and serving as a physical education teacher, Rickman handles the conditioning program for girls athletics. When she joined the coaching and teaching staff at Mortimer Jordan High five years ago, Rickman felt that their weight training program was a good one, but that she wanted to take it to a higher level that would provide her athletes the best opportunity to win. "I knew that I had girls at this school who had the potential to play in college, but I also believed that they would have to have a more advanced weight training program to reach this level", says Rickman. "I also believed that if we worked hard in the weightroom, it would give us an edge over everyone else."
