As a sophomore a year ago, she placed 2nd at the 2A state meet but had a commanding 20+ seconds advantage in 2022 as she reached the finish line. Jones is the defending 2A state champion in outdoor track in the 800 and 1600 meter runs and took 3rd in the 3200. Marilee Williams of Saratoga was 2nd in 21.42.9 and Ruth Johnson of Thermopolis was 3rd in 21.57.5 Annesa Luna of Lovell was 4th and Milan Scott of Saratoga was 3rd.
