ARNOLD, MD – The Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference (MD JUCO) has announced its 2017-18 All-Maryland JUCO Women's Basketball team and Anne Arundel Community College Riverhawk Daja Burnett has earned her spot among the elite list of student-athletes.
Daja Burnett, a freshman from Arnold, MD, has been an impeccable asset for the 2017-18 Riverhawk season and is currently ranked 5th in the conference for points per game, averaging 18.2. Burnett has recorded 6 double-doubles this season, and scored an impressive season high 35 points in the game against CCBC Catonsville.
