This past Thursday, Jones started the team’s game-closing 14-2 run in a 62-55 comeback win over Franklin & Marshall with a three-pointer as she scored 13 points. In Tuesday’s 62-45 win at McDaniel she led all players with 17 points. In a road game at Swarthmore on Monday night, she just missed a double-double with 13 points and nine rebounds, with her nine boards being a contest-best.

Jones played basketball (all four years on varsity) at Wheaton High School. She was named the WHS Student-Athlete of the Week eight times and was one of top basketball scorers in the DMV per The Washington Post. She was a three-time WHS basketball Team MVP and served as WHS varsity team captain for two years, earning first and second team All-Montgomery County Girls Basketball honors. Jones was the first player in Wheaton’s history to reach 1,000 career points. At Wheaton, she also played soccer and volleyball and was an honor roll student all four years.

This is Jones’ third career Shorewoman of the Week honor.
