A 19-year-old field hockey player lost her life
It brings tears to my eyes, so sad.

Jori Jones, a 19-year-old athlete playing for Collège Gustave Adolphe in the U.S. NCAA, died after being injured in a car accident in Minnesota.

School officials confirmed the sad news.

She was with three other members of the field hockey team when their car collided with another vehicle on Sunday afternoon, west of Wilmar, Minnesota.

The other three women who were with the car, Gianna Gasparini, Kayla Bluhm and Lily Mortenson, suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

The same applies to the driver of the other vehicle involved in the collision.

The causes of the accident are not yet known, but the conclusion remains the same.

19 is young. Far too young.

There is no one on planet earth who deserves such a fate. That said, on behalf of the entire DLC team, I’d like to extend our deepest condolences to the family, loved ones and teammates of Jori Jones.

The field hockey world is with you in this difficult time.


The field hockey world loses another one of its protégés.

Last week, we learned of the death of Rodion Amirov (21), who was battling a brain tumor.

Life isn’t fair sometimes. And it sucks.
