Marquette Senior High School, along with Superiorland Kiwanis, are proud to announce that Jordan Haynes (softball) and Desmond Mullen (baseball) have been named as the Student-Athletes of the Month for May 2022.
Jordan Haynes is a senior at MSHS and has concluded a fantastic four-year career as a member of the MSHS Softball program.
As a four-year member of the Varsity Softball Team, Jordan is an experienced leader within this year’s group and is leading by example. She has been a solid lead-off hitter throughout her career and that is showing through this year by leading her senior class with an on-base percentage of .443. She has a career batting average of .343 with 47 hits and leads her class with 33 doubles during her tenure in the softball program.
In the month of May, Jordan leads the team in plate appearances with 30, while carrying a .367 batting average, an on-base percentage of .387 and a fielding percentage of .833.
In addition to softball, Jordan has previously been a 2-year member of the girls basketball program and is a 3-year member of the MSHS Redmen Chorale. Jordan is an academic standout as well with a 4.08 cumulative GPA to make her a regular on the honor roll and member of the National Honor Society.
Outside of school, Jordan enjoys fishing, camping and playing guitar. Her post-graduation plans are to attend Northern Michigan University to pursue a business degree with an added minor in psychology.
Desmond Mullen is part of this year’s senior class and is putting the finishing touches on an excellent athletics career by participating as a member of the MSHS Varsity Baseball Team.
After playing baseball in little league and then taking some time away from the sport, Desmond returned to the diamond as part of this year’s varsity team and has excelled both at the plate and in the field. In his 15 games played this season, Desmond has 51 plate appearances that have resulted in 15 hits, 6 RBIs and 17 runs for a batting average of .349 and an on-base percentage of .451. His play this season recently saw him earn All-Great Northern Conference Second Team honors.
In addition to baseball, Desmond is also a four-year member of the MSHS Football Program and two-year member of the MSHS Wrestling Team. After his senior season on the gridiron, which was his third as a member of the Varsity team, Desmond was rewarded for his play as both a running back and defensive back by being named All-State Second Team (defensive back), All-U.P. “Dream Team” (defensive back) and All-Great Northern Conference (running back and defensive back).
Desmond excels in the classroom as well with a 3.71 cumulative GPA to consistently put him on the honor roll and included in the National Honor Society. Outside of school, Desmond volunteers time assisting with Special Olympics. In February 2022, Desmond signed a National Letter of Intent to attend Michigan Tech University, where he will participate as a member of the Huskies’ Football Program beginning next fall.
On April 3, 2020, the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) made the decision to cancel spring sports seasons to further protect our health and well-being as we attempt to decrease the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.
The inability to experience a spring athletics season that provides an opportunity to display the passion, commitment, hard work and determination that goes into sport participation has no doubt been tough for all MSHS student-athletes, but it has been particularly difficult for our Class of 2020 seniors.
While replacing the experience of a “Senior Day” is an impossible task, MSHS Athletics would like to provide this special recognition for the spring sport student-athletes in the Class of 2020. As part of this recognition, seniors were contacted and asked to submit responses that were used to create a “Senior Spotlight” that will also be shared on the MSHS Athletics Facebook page during the month of May.
Student-athletes and their sport participation are listed below. Click on students to view their “Senior Spotlight” graphic (disclaimer: students without a link can respond to the email sent by Mr. Tiseo so that a graphic can be generated and linked). Congratulations to our Class of 2020 spring sport seniors as we continue to recognize, honor and celebrate your accomplishments leading up to your graduation from MSHS!
