Erin Jones, a standout Midfielder and Forward for Paducah Tilghman High School signed to play soccer with St. Catharine College in a ceremony at the High School yesterday.
Jones earned All District recognition in 2011 and the "Best Goal of the Year" award in 2010 for Vaden Fenton's Blue Tornado squad. She has played for Jackson Purchase Futbol Club as well as running track, cheering for Tilghman, and playing tennis. In addition to soccer, Erin plans to play Tennis at St. Catharine as well.
Aside from her athletic interests, Erin is an outstanding student. She is a member of Beta Club and Honor Society, and she is currently taking several Advanced Placement (AP) courses. She is presently undecided on a major at St. Catharine, but is leaning toward Education.
Patriot Coach Paul Patton, present at the ceremony, commented on Jones, "I am very excited to be signing Erin today. She is a strong player, with size, skill, and speed. She brings a lot of ability to the table and will provide flexibility and depth to our recruiting class. I look forward to seeing how she will fit with our team and develop in the seasons to come. She will be a great asset to St. Catharine!"
