Central Baptist College softball coach Jordon Jones has been selected for the Marvin Delph Award by the Conway Athletic Awards Commission. The award recognizes the female sports person of the year. 

Jones will be honored at a banquet on Sunday, Jan. 20, at CBC, along with men’s award winner Ross Duncan.

The Marvin Delph Award was named for Conway native and former Arkansas Razorback basketball player Marvin Delph, and is bestowed annually to both a male and female winner designated as the Conway sports person of the year. This will be the 19th year that the award will be presented.

Jones, previously selected as the NCCAA National Coach of the Year and as the Raymond Bright Award winner, led CBC to a 42-19 record last season, the best ever for a first-year softball coach in program history, and an NCCAA National Championship, their second all-time. Jones will begin her second year as CBC softball coach in February.
