Jones took home 3rd place in both the 1600m and 3200m at the 2021 NCHSAA 3A state meet. She won the NCHSAA 3A Midwest 3200m crown and was runner-up in the 1600m.
She was NC No. 5 last season in the 3200m running 10:42 and was NC No. 12 in the 1600m clocking 5:01.
Her personal best in the 5000m, 18:22, was NC No. 16 last season, but after her huge 3200m personal best I think she can crack that 18:00 barrier this season.
On the track this past season she clocked 17:27 for 5000m for a huge personal best.
Jones proved during track season she is a high-level racer, but will her success on the track transfer over to the cross country course?
