VIDEO: Interview with Charter's Jordan Wood
Charter School of Wilmington's lacrosse star Jordan Wood is this week's WDEL High School Athlete of the Week.

The junior scored 8 goals in a 19-3 victory over Mount Pleasant Tuesday afternoon.

Jordan says there are good reasons for Charter's 3-0 start.

"We've been really successful in working together by communicating on the field. I feel we're on our way to a good season."

Her success this year might not have seemed likely after suffering an ACL injury in pre-season last year, but she worked hard to get back on the field.

"At rehab we mostly focused on positioning and proper form, so you don't re-injure yourself. That will definitely be helpful in the rest of my sports career."

Jordan says there are reasons she is attracted to either becoming a doctor or entering another part of the medical field.

"The intensity that it has, especially as a surgeon. You're always on your feet, like you're always on your feet in sports. Plus it's hands-on."

As for what drives Jordan Wood, she cites two important people in her life.

"My parents. They have always been a great support in putting me in the best position possible to get more playing time. They've encouraged me to practice on my own, and do those little things."

Jordan and Charter look to continue their unbeaten ways after Spring Break when they host Concord on April 14.
