Presbyterian College has hired Kali Jones as an assistant coach.
Jones spent the abbreviated 2020 season as a graduate assistant on staff at South Carolina, part of the staff in a year that saw the Gamecocks post a 17-6 overall record before the season ended prematurely.
During her playing career at UNC-Wilmington from 2016-19, Jones was a 4-year starter in the outfield for the Seahawks. She posted a career .259 batting average, with a .368 on-base percentage; 33 stolen bases; and 72 runs scored. In addition to her on-field endeavors, she was a 4-time recipient of the CAA Commissioner’s Academic Award.
At Presbyterian, Jones joins the staff of a Blue Hose program that went 16-8 on the shortened 2020 season. The Blue Hose enjoyed wins over Mercer, Butler, and Jones’ alma mater, UNC-Wilmington, though the campaign ended prior to the start of Big South conference play. The Blue Hose finished the abbreviated year with a .245 team batting average and a .963 team fielding percentage.
