Two players from this year’s women’s basketball team received an incredible honor recently when they were inducted into the Santa Fe College Student Hall of Fame.
Bree Maxwell has been accepted into the prestigious University of Florida School of Journalism and will likely pass on opportunities to continue playing basketball in order to attend UF. She he has been a team captain for two years and served on the Student Activities and Fees Committee, all while achieving nearly a perfect 4.0 GPA at SF.
Deja McPhee has accepted a scholarship to Kennesaw State and will start there this summer. She plans to major in pre-medicine while playing basketball, and maintaining her high GPA.
“I am so proud to have two women’s basketball players in the same year chosen for this distinction,” said SF Coach Chanda Stebbins. “They are the first in history of our program to be chosen for the Hall of Fame and I can’t think of two better representatives for SF or SF women’s basketball than these two. They have been tremendous contributors to our community efforts. Deja being local and contributing heavily to the community she grew up in through speaking engagements and volunteering. Briana Maxwell was instrumental her freshman year in helping our team become involved in the backpack program. Both are exemplary students and I am so excited to see what the future holds for each of them.”
