Add another honor to Berkeley Prep volleyball player Jordan Burgess' list of postseason accolades.

Burgess, who led the Bucs to the Class 3A state tile last month, has been named to the MaxPreps Volleyball All-American Team. She was one of 12 players from around the nation to make first team.

Burgess has also been named the Florida Gatorade Player of the Year and the Florida Dairy Farmers Ms. Volleyball, honors given to the top player in the state.

Berkeley went 30-2 this past season, going undefeated against in-state opponents while winning its second straight and 14th overall state title.
