Denmark Tech’s Farmer named NJCAA Region 10 Division I Player of the Year

Denmark Tech women’s basketball player, Tashiana Farmer, has been named NJCAA Region 10 Division I Player of the Year for the 2023-2024 season. Farmer, who came to Denmark out of Crestwood High School in Sumter, SC, proved to be invaluable to the DTC team, pulling in 278 points for the season, as well as 84 rebounds, six steals, three assists and three blocks. 

“This is a great honor for Denmark Tech as well as for Farmer. It has been amazing to watch how she has developed as a player and a leader this year. She has been a pleasure to coach and I can’t wait to see what next season brings,” said James Hill Jr., Denmark Tech athletic director and women’s basketball head coach. 

The Denmark Tech freshman is the first player at the college to win this award in recent history.  Earlier this season, Farmer was also named to the NJCAA All-Region Team. 

“I’m so excited to have been chosen for this amazing distinction. I have grown so much, both on and off the court, at Denmark Tech. I wouldn’t be where I am today without Coach Hill and the wonderful team at DTC. I’m looking forward to coming back in the fall and taking my game to the next level,” said Farmer. 

Farmer played a vital role for the Denmark Tech this season, starting in 14 of the 19 games, racking up some impressive stats and closing out a stellar season with winning the conference championship.  

Farmer is ranked first in the division in field goals, with a 71.2 percent rating. She averaged 14.6 points per game and holds a 69.4% free throw percentage, making 68 out of 98 attempts. 

“Having the NJCAA Region 10 Division I player of the year on the women’s basketball team is a source of great pride for the college. It was phenomenal to watch how Farmer blossomed across the course of the season. She has a bright future ahead of her.” said Willie L. Todd Jr., Ph.D., president and CEO of Denmark Technical College.
