Kelsey Jones For the second time this season, freshman Kelsey Jones of the Muhlenberg softball team was named pitcher of the week by the Centennial Conference.

Jones contributed to three wins in a 4-0 week for the Mules, going 2-0 with a save. She allowed only two earned runs in 16 1/3 innings for a 0.86 ERA while striking out 15, walking none and holding opponents to a .194 batting average.

Jones tossed a five-hitter for her second career shutout in the first game of the Franklin & Marshall doubleheader, then pitched out of a bases-loaded jam to earn the save in the nightcap. Her 15 strikeouts gave her 91 for the season, a school record for freshmen.

For the season, Jones is 9-9 with a 2.86 ERA. In her last 10 outings, she is 6-3 with a save and a 1.54 ERA.
