Ashley Jones Named NCCAA Softball Student-Athlete of the Week
March 7, 2007
Jones, who is 4-6 this season, has seen the pitcher’s rubber five times in the last week, starting three of those games. The freshman phenom has surrendered only one earned run in her last 29 innings pitched, brining her season’s ERA down to 3.80.
PBA Head Coach Kimmy Bloemers gave Jones the nod against eighth-ranked Le Moyne last Tuesday (Feb. 27), and she took command of the Dolphins, striking out 12 in the game. As if 12 K’s weren’t enough, Jones one-upped herself yesterday, shutting down Eckerd College with a career-high 14 strikeouts.
Sailfish softball fans can expect to see not only an improved Jones, but also a highly improved PBA team on the field for years to come.
