Coach Tarr on Jones
"Whitney Jones was the first of this class to commit to Washington. She is the epitome of a Husky softball player: selfless, accountable, confident and tough. Her primary role will be in our outfield but we are anxious to see how her left-handed arm mixes with our pitching rotation. She's a right-handed power hitter with measureable speed."

Jones on why Washington
"I chose Washington because it offers everything I wanted in a college and more. I'm getting the chance to earn a top-notch college degree in the classroom, and will always be striving for a National Championship on the field."
