Hope College’s Sydney Jones has been named the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Softball Pitcher of the Week for games played through Sunday, April 17.

The sophomore from South Lyon, Michigan (South Lyon East HS) claimed the accolades for the first time after hurling three shutouts in league play last week. 

Jones pitched two complete-game shutouts at Kalamazoo and against Albion and worked 5 1.3 innings to open a shutout win over Olivet. 

Jones allowed just six hits and three walks in 19 1/3 innings of work in the circle. 

Jones ended the week with a 3-0 record and an impressive 28 on the week.
