Jones committed to the school after weighing her options, visiting the campus and meeting the soccer coach.

“I thought it was a great fit and it’s going to be fun to compete at the next level,” she said.

According to her high school soccer coach Dan Witmer, Jones is poised for success on the field and in the classroom at LeMoyne.

He cited her teamwork, leadership, and work ethic as key ingredients to her success.

“As good as she is individually, she is just as good of a teammate,” Witmer said. “She is a hard worker and I don’t see a whole lot standing in her way.”

HCSD Athletic Director Pat Keefe echoed those sentiments.

“Her work ethic is outstanding,” he said. “Kassi is a great, well-rounded student athlete.”

In addition to her athletic accomplishments, Jones is involved in several school organizations, including Varsity Club and Key Club.

She also serves as the vice president of the senior class.

“The last four years have been great for me as a student-athlete,” Jones said. “I’m looking forward to what’s next.”

Jones is the daughter of Jennifer and Gary “Casey” Jones.
