Jones is a senior information systems major from Keller, Texas, with a 3.88 GPA.
Jones led Harding with a .371 batting average, 36 runs, 19 extra-base hits and a .629 slugging percentage. She earned First Team All-Great American Conference.
All nominees for this award must have reached sophomore status, carry a 3.30 cumulative GPA and boast noteworthy academic and athletic achievements.
