The 2019-20 roster will return six letter winners with hopes to build on their quest at the District III Championship Tournament while competing as a top contender in the Mid Penn Colonial Division. Jones and squad have committed themselves to be relentless, disciplined and passionate through both the successes and challenges that will make the 2019-20 season one to remember.

A 2005 Big Spring Grad, Jones participated in three sports as a Bulldog (Basketball, Softball and Volleyball) earning 1st Team All-Sentinel in softball in her senior season, and 2nd team All-Sentinel in basketball in her junior and senior seasons.  Jones is a 2008 grad from Central Pennsylvania College where she earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Criminal Justice Administration.  In May of 2017 Jones earned her Master’s of Science degree in Sports Administration at the California University of Pennsylvania.

Before earning the head position in March of 2011, Jones spent 4 years as the JV Head Coach for the Lady Bulldogs, 1 year as the 8th grade Head Coach and 1 year as a volunteer assistant under Head Coach Scott Weyant. 

Jones enters the 2019-20 season with an overall record of 98-84.  Jones has led the Lady Bulldogs to the District III Championship Tournament in 2012, 2013, 2015, 2018 and 2019, this includes a district playoff win and a Mid Penn Colonial Division crown during the 2012-13 season. 

Jones has coached four Mid Penn Colonial Division 1st Team All-Stars (Dalida Camdzic 12’ and 13’, Nicole Thuemmel 15’, Madison Bishop 18’, Laney Noreika 22’) to include two Big-15 All-Star selections (Dalida Camdzic 13’ and Nicole Thuemmel 15’).  Jones currently has five Bulldog grads continuing their basketball career in college; Marissa Emlet 16’ (Elizabethtown College) Madison Colyer 17’ (Juniata College), Megan Emlet 18’ (Susquehanna University) Madison Bishop 18’ (Penn State Mont Alto) Shelby Miller 19’ (Denison University).

While not only focusing on the older generation, Jones and her staff spend countless hours to develop the next generation of Big Spring Girls Basketball Youth that includes over 90 participants in K – 6th grade for the 2019-20 season.

Jones values work ethic, loyalty, and passion for the game amongst her players, and an overall program that desires to demonstrate Bulldog Pride both on and off the court.  Jones is currently employed with the Big Spring School District as the Administrative Assistant to the Athletic Director/Assistant Principle.
