Hope College’s Sydney Jones has received All-America honors from Fastpitch News for the 2018 season.
The senior pitcher from South Lyon, Michigan (East HS) is one of 15 second-team selections
and 55 honorees overall.
This is the second consecutive season Fastpitch News has recognized Jones. She was a Fastpitch News First-Team All-American as a junior.
During the 2018 season, Jones set five single-season school records while helping the Flying Dutch win the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Tournament and advance to the Super Regional round of the NCAA Division III Tournament.
Jones established new top marks by a Flying Dutch student-athlete in wins with 21, strikeouts with 242, innings pitched with 173 ⅔, appearances with 26, and complete games with 23.
Jones also threw the second-most shutouts with nine. She trailed only her 2017 record of 11.
