 ELLISVILLE – Jones County Junior College pitcher Ginger Lonergan has been named an NJCAA Division II, third-team All-American.

Lonergan enjoyed an exceptional freshman season for head coach Chris Robinson’s Lady Bobcats.  The Gretna, La., product was 18-6 with a 1.36 earned run average (ERA). In 164 1/3 innings, she allowed 138 hits and struck out 164.

The Dominican High School graduate threw a perfect game on Feb. 11 in an 8-0 JCJC victory and tossed a no-hitter in the Lady Bobcats’ 2-0 win at Holmes on Feb. 26.

Lonergan, who was also named All-Region 23, helped JCJC to its best ever fastpitch season. JCJC went 35-15 (a school record for wins) and qualified for the first time ever for the MACJC State Tournament and Region 23 Tournament.
