Montgomery tabbed all-region

ANNANDALE – Former Northern Virginia Community College women’s basketball student-athlete Jalita Montgomery was named First Team All-NJCAA Region 20 Division II. The voting was done by the D-II coaches.

Montgomery, who was a second team pick a year ago led the region in scoring at 22.1 points per game during the 2017-18 season. She also topped Region 20 in steals (132), free throws (113-for-175) and field goals (218-of-615).

The Bowie, Md., native, meanwhile, was the eighth leading scorer in the country and was third in steals. Montgomery also tied the NJCAA Division II record for points in a game when she poured in 51 at Howard on Jan. 29.

Montgomery is just the second Nighthawk to earn a first team nod, as she joins Christian Roberts, who took home the honor following the 2015-16 campaign.
