NewsOK.com Player of the Year: Sharane Campbell, Star Spencer
Much like whenever Sharane Campbell was on the floor for Star Spencer, you could never count her out. Midwest City’s Ashley Clark got off to a big lead, then Courtney Walker asserted her dominance, but it was Campbell’s grittiness that carried the day.
Receiving just under 31 percent of the more than 1,900 votes, Campbell is the NewsOK.com Girls Basketball Player of the Year.
What can you say about Campbell? She’s the ultimate competitor. Was never afraid to inside and bang and was just as comfortable playing the role of point guard.
Campbell burst onto the scene in 2008, leading the Bobcats to the state championship. Everybody knew then she would be a name to watch for her final three years. And she was. The team was never as talented as that special 2008 group, but Campbell never quit on them.
Coach Janith Johnson was always quick to say how Campbell tried to be like a big sister to the younger girls and helped them develop.
It was all worth it this year when a team that I didn’t think was going to sniff a state tournament berth upset Harrah to advance to the 4A dance. Star lost to Cache in the quarterfinals, but for an unranked team to make that run was more than enough. And it was a great way for Campbell to close out her career.
