WWU’s Jones selected BennettRank All-American

Western Washington University defender Brianna Jones was a second-team pick on the BennettRank NCAA Division II Women's Soccer All-America Team announced Thursday, Dec. 4.

Jones, a senior from Bonney Lake, led a WWU defense that had a 0.32 goals against average, allowing just seven goals, and posted 14 shutouts. She also scored three goals and assisted on two others.

Jones was a third-team Daktronics All-America selection and a three-time Daktronics West Region all-star, being first-team in 2013 and 2014 and second-team in 2012. She also was a National Soccer Coaches Association of America West Region all-star for the second time, being first team in 2014 and second team in 2013.
