KINGSTON, R.I. - Rhode Island's Dawson Jones has been named to the 2018 PING All-Northeast Region Team, announced Saturday afternoon on collegiategolf.com. It marks the second year in a row Jones earns the honor.

The Howell, N.J. native - who also collected his second consecutive Atlantic 10 All-Conference award this spring - led Rhode Island in scoring with a 72.8 stroke average. He placed 15th or better in seven of URI's nine tournaments this year, including all four spring events.

Overall, the rising senior finished below par in three tournaments and carded three sub-70 rounds. His low round of the year (68) came in the final round of the Villanova Wildcat Invitational, where he helped lead Rhode Island to a second-place finish among the field of 19.
