Antioch resident Anjelina Mayjoffo, sophomore outfielder for Newbury College Nighthawks, was among student-athletes from 600 institutions named 2012 National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-American Scholar Athlete Award winner, announced on Dec 6.
The NFCA All-America Scholar-Athlete Award is presented to any player, submitted by a member coach, who achieved a grade-point average north of 3.50 during the 2011-12 academic year. The prestigious honor marks the second component of the Association's academic award program. In October, the squads with the highest GPAs in each membership category, were recognized as the 2012 NFC Top Ten All-Academic Teams.
Mayjoffo not only excelled on the diamond earning New England Collegiate Conference Rookie of the Week honors twice while hitting a team-high .406 in 24 games, but also in the classroom receiving the honors for the first time.
Mayjoffo looks to build off her impressive freshman season where she tied Nighthawk career single-game highs with four hits and four runs scored against nonconference Framingham State College on April 5.
