CHADRON – Mollie Jones of Longmont, Colo., was presented the Clyde Bond Memorial Award during Ivy Day at Chadron State College Friday night.
The award is given annually to CSC upperclassmen who exemplify the leadership skills, character and athletic abilities which Bond displayed during his four years Chadron State.
Jones was a four year starter at outside hitter for the Chadron State volleyball team. As a senior, she finished with 214 kills and 284 digs. She was named to the 2012 Capital One All-Academic District Six First Team and she was a two-time RMAC All-Academic selection.
She was president of the Legal Studies Club, a member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and graduated Saturday with a bachelor’s degree in legal studies. She will pursue a graduate degree in sports management.
For her career, Jones played in 105 matches, which is among the school’s leaders. She also scored over 800 points in her career and is one of a handful of Eagles who had over 700 kills and 800 digs.
Bond was a native of Sheridan, Wyo., and a pitcher on the Chadron State baseball team. After graduating, he was attending a Southern Baptist seminary in Louisville, Ky., when he died on April 15, 1981 in an accident while mowing a church lawn.
