Aimee Campbell swiped six of Birdville’s 18 steals and had a key block down the stretch as the Hawks upset No. 5 Saginaw Boswell 41-39 in overtime during this past season’s area round.
Campbell, who averaged 8.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.4 steals per game, received her second-straight all-district honor.
The 5-foot-7 guard has been on the court since the third grade. “It’s fun and it lets me be creative and active.”
Campbell, who was first team all-district in 2015-16, has a real passion for the game, and hopes to play in the next level.
