Eastern Florida's Dajia Jones Earns State Softball Recognition


Dajia Jones

March 31, 2014 - Eastern Florida freshman Dajia Jones was named the Florida College System Activities Association Softball Pitcher of the Week for the games played from March 17-23.

Jones, a right-hander from Jacksonville, FL and Mandarin High, was 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA in two appearances during the voting period. Jones pitched back-to-back complete game shutouts against Broward College on March 20, winning both games 6-0.

In game one, she allowed four hits and one walk and struck out five. In the nightcap she allowed only two hits and no walks while striking out two.

"I'm sure this honor will mean a lot to Dajia as she is a highly competitive person and strives for perfection out here daily," said Eastern Florida head coach Ed Yanes. "She has and continues to work tirelessly on her total game plan, in the circle, in the box and on defense.

"Dajia will take this and will look at moving the bar even higher for herself in the last few weeks of the season."
