Jones, a graduate of Sultana High School, earned All-American honors, helping the Coyotes to the NCAA West Regional finals for the first time in school history. She established four records — season and career victories, and season and career shutouts for CSUSB — and was the CCAA Defensive Player of the Year.
Off the field, she became the fourth Coyote in history to earn dual All-American honors, on the field and as a Capital One Academic All-American.
She also secured the school’s Female Scholar Athlete of the Year honor for the second straight year and completed her bachelor’s degree in liberal arts studies in June.
The other CCAA nominee is also a soccer player – Karenee Demery of Cal State Stanislaus.
More than 120 NCAA female student-athletes representing multiple sports across NCAA Divisions I, II and III have been selected as 2014 Woman of the Year honorees by their athletics conferences and by independent schools.
The conference honorees represent student-athletes from 15 different sports. By division, 52 honorees competed in Division I conferences, 25 competed in Division II, and 49 competed in Division III.
A committee will select the top 10 honorees in each division from this pool to be recognized. These top 30 honorees will be announced in early September. The selection committee then will choose and announce the top nine finalists (three from each division) at the end of September. The NCAA Committee on Women’s Athletics will vote from amongst those nine finalists to determine the 2014 Woman of the Year.
