Former Tombstone and Pima Community College women’s basketball standout A’jha Edwards was recognized for her first year of play at Montana State University-Northern located in Havre, Montana.

Edwards, a junior, was named Newcomer of the Year and First-Team All-Frontier Conference. She helped lead the Polar Bears to a 21-9 overall record and a 10-6 record in conference play.

Edwards started 29 of the team’s 30 games playing 26.5 minutes per game while averaging 13.1 points per game and 10.4 rebounds. She also had 31 blocks and 34 steals.

Edwards was a Frontier Conference Player of the week in January and was an NJCAA First-Team All-American for the Aztecs in 2013.


In an effort to recognize all for local prep stars who have gone on to achieve either academic and/or athletic awards at the next level, I will update this list. These are not high school awards but college and professional awards.
