ACADEMIC PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Jada Atchison of Burlington City


PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Jada Atchison of Burlington City again proved to be one of the state’s most prolific scorers, and she ended her career by reaching a personal milestone.

Atchison surpassed the 2000-point mark on Feb. 23, and she ultimately finished her career with 2009 points. The senior was sidelined near the end of the season with a foot and ankle injury.

Despite missing some time at the end, Atchison still pieced together a strong senior campaign, scoring 22.2 points per game to help the team to an 18-9 finish.

Atchison powered the Burlington City attack with quickness and ability to create space while driving to the rim. Her versatility allowed her score in multiple ways, whether in the paint or behind the arc. Click Here For Full Article…
