Jones was named to his second ASUN All-Academic Team of the 2017-18 school year after earning a spot on the men's cross country All-Academic Team in the fall.
During the indoor season, Jones set a new school record in the mile as he recorded a time of 4:13.20 at the ASUN Championships while finishing in fourth place. Jones earned Third Team All-Conference honors in the Distance Medley Relay.
