Jones commits to Siena

Troy High School senior Shannon Jones announced on Sunday that she has verbally committed to play softball at Siena College beginning this fall.
Hands down the best pure hitter in Section II, Jones helped the Flying Horses win their third straight Big 10 championship in 2008. The power hitting center fielder smacked six home runs and finished with a .690 on base percentage thanks to 29 bases on balls from pitchers afraid to give her anything to hit. Jones picked up the 2008 Big 10 MVP not only for her offensive prowess but also for her fearless play in the outfield. Her outstanding range and highlight reel catches in center field saved many runs for Troy.
