Deer Valley High grad Anjelina Mayjoffo receives national Scholar-Athlete honors at Newbury College in Massachusetts
Sophomore outfielder Anjelina Mayjoffo from Antioch, California was among thousands of student-athletes from 600 institutions named 2012 National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) All-America Scholar-Athlete Award winners, announced late Thursday afternoon.
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. Back in late October the squads with the highest GPAs in each membership category were recognized as the 2012 NFCA Top Ten All-Academic Teams.
Mayjoffo not only excelled on the diamond earning New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) 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. The Antioch native looks to build off her impressive freshman season where she tied Nighthawk career single-game highs with four hits and four runs scored against non-conference Framingham State College on April 5, 2012. She plays both infield and outfield for the team.
Mayjoffo, a 2011 graduate of Deer Valley High School, was a two-sport athlete in high school. She played four years of varsity softball under Head Coach Amy Tillson and three years of varsity soccer. She’s the daughter of Julie and Don Mayjoffo. Anjelina volunteered in local little league and church.
Newbury College has been a leader in career focused education for 50 years. The school is located in Brookline, Massachusetts, just outside of Boston. For more information visit www.newbury.edu.
