High 5 4 Kids: Natosha Jordan

LINCOLN COUNTY, GA (WFXG) -

She's representing the CSRA in a big way. This week's spotlight kid started running for fun and now she's racing to the finish line for some major titles.
From Richmond County high point female athlete three years in a row to now a state champion.

Meet Natosha Jordan, rising senior and track star at the Academy of Richmond County.

"I just tried it out my middle school, seventh grade year and ever since then I just stuck to it," Jordan said.

And it didn't take her long to figure out that this was more than just a trial run.

"Like now, I take practices more seriously because before it was not fun at all. I would play around all the time, but now it's a whole different level," Jordan said.

Tuesday night, the Richmond County School Board recognized Jordan for winning the Georgia State title in the 5A High Jump.

"I was honored, at first I didn't know I was going there, but then after she said what she said, I just knew," Jordan said.

Jordan has already received some college offers and plans to attend the University of Central Florida upon graduation in the spring.
But for now, she plans to continue to work on bringing the CSRA another title her senior year.

"You're at a level where competition is behind you and you have to push yourself," Jordan said. "When I get on the higher level, it shows during my competition. So, during the season I try to push myself because I'm racing against time and not my competitors."
