North County’s Jones named Applebee’s of Farmington Athlete of the Week

(Bonne Terre) North County Raiders senior Kate Jones is the Applebee’s of Farmington Athlete of the Week.

Jones is off to a soaring start to the track & field season – literally.

The pole vaulter has not lost this season, winning the vault at the Raider Relays in Bonne Terre and the Rebel Relays in Park Hills before taking the title at the Old Settlement Invitational in Ste. Genevieve this weekend.

North County head coach Cory Dicus says it takes a special talent to have that sort of success.

Jones’ most recent pole vault win came by clearing 2.75 meters.

As Athlete of the Week, she receives a T-shirt, a certificate and a coupon for a free entree at Applebee’s in Farmington.
