AS A JUNIOR (2012)
One of the top all-arounders in the nation, Jordan Salsberg sustained a knee injury on her beam dismount against No. 9 Nebraska on Feb. 24 and was lost for the season. Until that point, Salsberg was a consistent all-arounder who played a significant role in the Razorbacks earning their first No. 1 national ranking. 

She was ranked No. 23 in the nation and set career highs of 9.90 on vault against No. 6 Alabama and Nebraska, 9.875 on floor against No. 23 Kentucky and 39.275 in the all-around against No. 25 LSU. Salsberg also had a career-high tying 9.85 on bars against LSU.

Her 39.275 AA against LSU included tying for fourth on bars (9.85) and on beam (9.775), and helping Arkansas set a school record with a 197.225 in front of a school-record crowd of 5,537. That meet propelled Arkansas to the first No. 1 national ranking in school history.

She was third in the AA in the win over No. 23 Kentucky with a 39.25, finishing third on floor (9.875) and beam (9.775), fourth on vault (9.775) and fifth on bars (9.825).
Salsberg was fourth in the all-around with a 39.15 at the Cancun Classic, helping Arkansas win the five-team meet over No. 12 LSU, No. 17 Auburn, No. 19 Arizona and No. 25 Iowa.

Salsberg was also third in the AA against Oklahoma (38.60) and at Georgia with a 9.85 vault in both meets and season-high matching 9.825 beam at Georgia.

Salsberg was named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll and earned the team's Most Improved award for the second straight year.

AS A SOPHOMORE (2011)
A transfer from Southeast Missouri State, Salsberg had a huge impact in her first season. She helped the Razorbacks win the NCAA North Central Regional, tie for the SEC regular-season title, advance to the NCAA Championship for the fourth straight season and tie for ninth in the nation.

Salsberg competed as an all-arounder in 13 of 14 meets, competing in 55 of a possible 56 events, and ended the year ranked No. 38 in the nation. Salsberg won two beam titles and had 15 total top five finishes with her scores counting for the team 48 times.

The Gulfport, Miss., native had season highs of 9.875 on vault twice, 9.80 on bars, 9.85 on beam, 9.80 on floor and 39.225 in the all-around. Her scores on vault, beam, floor and the AA were career highs.

Salsberg had five top five finishes on vault, three on bars, five on beam and two on floor, and seven top three all-around finishes.

She won her first title as a Razorback with a 9.775 beam in the win at No. 27 Kentucky. The following week, Salsberg recorded her 9.80 on bars in the win at No. 22 Auburn.

Salsberg's 9.80 on floor, which tied for fifth, and a tie for fourth on vault (9.80) led to a second-place all-around finish (39.175) as Arkansas topped No. 4 Georgia for its first win over the Gym'Dogs. The following week, her 39.05 AA was third, helping the Razorbacks beat LSU in Baton Rouge for the first time.

Salsberg claimed her second beam title with the 9.85 in the win at No. 45 Illinois-Chicago, leading to a second-place finish and career-high 39.225 all-around.

In the postseason, she tied for 10th at the SEC Championship with a 9.875 vault, helping Arkansas to a program-best fourth-place finish. Salsberg helped Arkansas win the NCAA NC Regional by finishing sixth in the all-around (39.10).

The only Razorback to earn multiple team awards, Salsberg received the Most Improved award and the Dana McQuillin Coaches Award.

SOUTHEAST MISSOURI STATE
Salsberg transferred from Southeast Missouri State, where she competed in the all-around in nine of 12 competitions. She won 13 individual titles during the year, including five on vault and bars, one on beam and two in the all-around. Her all-around titles came in meets against Illinois State and Centenary.

In the Midwest Independent Conference championship, she placed fourth on vault, fourth on bars, third on beam and second in the all-around. Her finishes earned her first-team all-conference honors on beam and in the all-around, as well as second-team honors on vault and bars.

Salsberg had a strong freshman campaign, earning high scores of 9.825 on vault, 9.85 on bars, 9.75 on beam, 9.80 on floor and 38.825 in the AA. She earned SEMO's Freshman of the Year award, and MIC Specialist of the Week and All-Arounder of the Week honors.

Additionally, Salsberg had a strong academic showing as a freshman, earning a place on SEMO's Dean's List for the fall of 2009. This accomplishment helped SEMO earn a runner-up finish in the national academic standings.

LANIERS GYMNASTICS
A former Junior Olympic Level 10 national champion, Salsberg competed at Laniers Gymnastics in Gulfport, Miss. She qualified for the Junior Olympic Level 10 National Championship in 2007 and 2008.

In 2009, Salsberg won state titles on beam and vault while finishing second on bars and floor. At the Region VIII championship in 2009, she placed second on beam and fourth on vault.

As a junior in 2008, Salsberg won the national championship on balance beam. She swept all five disciplines at the Mississippi state championship. Her sixth-place finish in the all-around at the Region VIII championship placed her on the regional national team.

Salsberg won five state titles in 2007. Her regional performance earned her a trip to the Junior Olympic Level 10 nationals and was highlighted by a second-place finish on beam and a fourth-place finish on vault.

Salsberg was a three time Atlanta Crown Invitational all-around champion (2007, 2008, 2009).
