Recently, the 5’7, 160 pound athlete from Courtice, Ontario committed to Mount Allison Mounties.  Jones will join the team for the 2016 AUS season.

“I committed to Mount Allison because it felt like a perfect fit for me,” commented Jones of his commitment.  “Mount A has always been on my radar of schools I’d like to go to so when they contacted me I was pretty excited to say the least.”

“The community and atmosphere at the school is something that really sticks out to me. The tight knit feel and small town feel is something I liked. They’re latest success in the AUS winning back to back titles and reaching the finals this year was another factor in my decision and I hope to contribute to the further success of the team.”
