Wiscasset teen’s Olympic dream progresses

Aleeya Jones returned home to Wiscasset July 24 after achieving her highest level of training and competition to date. The Fort Lauderdale, Florida trip continued her work toward the same goal the Suki Lane teen has always had — to make the Olympic volleyball team.

Of the 66 14- and 15-year-olds who qualified throughout the U.S. in the A1 Team USA High Performance girls select event, Jones, 14, was the only New Englander, her mother Julie Jones said. She, Aleeya’s father Chad Jones and Aleeya’s siblings Madison, 12, and Dylan, 16, also went on the trip, but, as with other events the teen has attended in the Olympic pipeline, the athletes had little time with family.

Aleeya’s group ended up getting to play one level higher, with the 17- and 18-year-olds, Julie Jones said. “She did great. She showed everyone that this little Maine girl could do it.”
