Edge Reaches 1,000-point Milestone

C-GCC Stand-out Honored by the National Junior College Athletic Association

HUDSON, N.Y. – Tanisha Edge, a sophomore at Columbia-Greene Community College from Cementon, N.Y., was lauded this month by the National Junior College Athletic Association after banking her 1,000th career point.

Edge reached the milestone during a Wednesday, Jan. 24 game against Fulton-Montgomery Community College, earning the point on a three-pointer in the third quarter. She was formally recognized at the C-GCC Twins’ home game on Saturday, Feb. 10, receiving an honorary, personalized Spalding basketball and a video message from NJCAA Executive Director Christopher Parker.

This is just the latest in a stellar season for Edge, who was named National NJCAA Division III Women's Basketball Player of the Week in January, and also notched her seventh all-time NJCAA Division III Regional Female Athlete of the Week distinction in the same month – her third of the 2017-2018 season.

Richanna Lindo, director of athletics at C-GCC, explained that the Twins women’s basketball program was resurrected in 2016 after a 10-year hiatus, and has since excelled, currently seated second in the region. The team has also garnered coveted first-place votes and national recognition from the National Division III Women’s Basketball Poll Committee, and five players: Edge, Stacey Cherestal, Amira Furtado, Anyla Harper, and Shayna Ostrowsky, are all nationally ranked in various statistical categories.

“Receiving national votes marks a phenomenal moment for the Twins, and the accolades keep coming,” she said. “The team’s hard work is showing – and we’ve truly only just begun.”
