Mirror Female Athlete of the Week

Name: Alli Campbell

School: Bellwood-Antis

Age: 18

Grade: Senior

Sport: Basketball

Athlete of the week achievement: Campbell collected 32 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists and three steals in a 70-33 win over Glendale. She also had 35 points, eight rebounds, five steals and three blocks in a 74-49 victory over Everett.

Season update: Campbell is averaging 30.4 points, 7.6 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 4.2 steals per game for the 5-0 Lady Blue Devils.

Coach Jim Swaney’s quote: “Her season this year has been pretty amazing, considering that it really just started for her on Dec. 6 (due to a broken finger). So, she really hasn’t been going that long, and she’s scored 30 or more in four out of five games. More importantly, though, you can see the growth. She’s really taking a role as a leader, she’s so much stronger — she’s much harder to handle in and around the post area.”
