Jordan Barncastle was named to the 2012 Winter Chick-fil-A Community of Champions.

LUBBOCK, Texas - Texas Tech senior forward Jordan Barncastle was honored on Wednesday as one of the 10 representatives on the 2012 Winter Chick-fil-A Community of Champions.

Only one student-athlete is honored from each of the 10 Big 12 Conference institutions based on his/her academics, community service and leadership/sportsmanship. The student-athlete must maintain a 3.0 GPA, be involved with at least one community service program and should demonstrate leadership and sportsmanship on and off the playing field or court.

"We are so excited for Jordan and everything she has accomplished here at Texas Tech," head coach Kristy Curry said. "JB has shown every aspect of what this honor represents and is a great ambassador for Texas Tech and the Big 12."

Each institution for each student-athlete is honored with $4,500 from Chick-fil-A as a result of his or her activities within the community.

Barncastle (Martin's Mill, Texas) will graduate with a degree in biology and plans to go to medical school to pursue a degree in sports medicine. She's started the last three games for Texas Tech and is averaging 15.7 minutes and 5.7 points per game this season. Barncastle has been heavily involved in community service projects throughout Lubbock including the Ronald McDonald House, Susan G. Komen Foundation, UMC Children's Hospital, Covenant Children's Hospital and Salvation Army.
