Tacita Gonzalez, a sophomore point guard at Anoka-Ramsey Community College, was named to the 2013 NJCAA Division III All American team.
Gonzalez, a Fridley High School graduate, led the Golden Rams in scoring averaging 12.3 points per game. She also led the team in assists (3.5) and steals (2.3). In 2011 she was the point guard on Anoka-Ramsey’s National Championship team.
“Cita has overcome a lot of adversity in her life. Instead of making excuses she rose above her adversity, persevered and has made a big impact not just on our basketball program but the school as well," says Anoka-Ramsey Head Coach Dave DeWitt. "This is a well-deserved honor. We couldn’t be happier for her or more proud.”
