The record-setting summer for Edmonds-Woodway High School baseball alumnus Owen Jones was capped off by being named the West Coast League’s 2011 Pitcher of the Year. Jones, who’ll be a senior at the University of Portland, set a league record with 7 wins, going 7-1 with a 2.00 ERA and 78 strikeouts in 77 innings pitched.
In addition to the WCL Pitcher of the Year honor, the Edmonds native was already named a summer collegiate baseball First Team All-American by Perfect Game CrossChecker. Only four pitchers in the country were named to the All-American First Team.
Jones previously played in Wenatchee after his freshman year in 2008. He was one of the most consistent pitchers for the AppleSox in 2008, being named All-WCL honorable mention and helping the team reach the WCL Championship Series. He went 3-3 with a 2.72 ERA, the lowest on the team for a starter that season.
Jones is a 2007 graduate of Edmonds-Woodway.
