BOISE, Idaho-Boise State softball coach Erin Thorpe announced, Thursday, Jordan Kreiger of Hillsboro, Ore., signed a National Letter of Intent to join the Broncos. Kreiger, currently a senior at Glencoe High School, is an infielder.

"Jordan brings an excellent glove to our middle infield and has a great understanding of the game," Thorpe said. "We are excited to bring in an athlete with her skills and leadership ability and expect her to make an impact immediately."

Kreiger has lettered her first three years at Glencoe under head coach Jacy Jukkala, starting all 91 games she has played in her high school career. She has guided the Crimson Tide to an 86-7 record and a berth in the 5A state championship game each of the past three seasons. Kreiger helped Glencoe bring home the first-place trophy in 2010, with a 29-2 record.

She batted .422 as a freshman in 2008 to earn second team all-league and all-state honors at second base. A year later Kreiger moved to shortstop and hit .466 with five home runs, 39 runs scored and 36 RBI. She also racked up a .953 fielding percentage on her way to being named first team all-state. She repeated the first team honors as a junior.

For Kreiger, the success does not end at the high school level. She is a five-year member of Northwest Blaze travel team, coached by Rob Ray, Chris Kelly and Wilbur Charters. In 2009, Northwest Blaze rode Kreiger's .390 batting average and 54 RBI to the ASA 16A National Championship title. The championship run came on the heels of a seventh place finish at the same tournament in 2008. Kreiger also appeared with Northwest Blaze at the 2010 ASA 18 Gold Premiere National Championship.

The 2009 Northwest Blaze was named Nike Team of the Year at the Oregon Sports Awards. Kreiger teamed with current Bronco freshman Morgan Barnes on the national championship squad.

Kreiger also earned one letter in basketball and two letters in volleyball at Glencoe, serving as the volleyball team captain this season.

Kreiger bats and throws right handed. Her hobbies include snowboarding, coaching and socializing. She plans to major in health sciences at Boise State.
