A current senior is on the fast track to success in college as Dallas Jones ‘18 signed to run track for Morehead State University on Friday, April 20.
“I chose the school because it fit me as a person and I can see myself succeeding well,” Jones said. “It is the best for me academically and athletically.”
Jones has been a member of the CJ track and field team for four years. In 2017, she earned a trip to the state track and field competition as a member of the 4x200 relay team.
“She works hard,” noted head coach Jerry Puckett. “She worked her way up and she’s had success - this is the culmination of it. I’m proud of her.”
In addition to her talent on the track, Jones has been a key contributor to the women’s basketball team. During her senior season, she was named the GCL athlete of the year, named to the All-GCL First Team and represented CJ during the District 15 All-Star Game. In 2016, Jones was named to the All-GCL Second Team.
“I’m going to miss the people of CJ,” Jones reflected as her senior year comes to an end. “I’ll miss my classmates because they helped me through my whole process.”
Jones intends to study English and film studies in college.
