The legend of Tompkins Cortland Community College sophomore Jaida Washington (Elmira/Elmira H.S.) continues to grow. After plastering her name throughout the record books during her two seasons on the court, Washington is continuing to pile up postseason honors. Just days after becoming the first player in the history of Panthers women’s basketball to become a two-time all-conference selection, Washington has added two more firsts. Washington was voted to the All-Region III First Team, becoming the first player in program history to be named to the first team. It is also Washington’s second year on any all-region team, making her the first player in program history to be a two-time all-region selection. Voting for all-region honors was done by coaches from the 16 teams in Region III.
