T-Bird Outside Hitter Helps Coronado Advance in Playoffs

El Paso, TX - Last week, Campbell Bowden verbally committed to Baylor University.  Just a junior, the Coronado High School volleyball player is racking up the postseason awards.  In 2017, Campbell was named the District 1-6A MVP, one year after earning District 1-6A defensive player of the year honors.  Campbell also ranked third in the state in Kills, and first in Kills per Set.

In 2016, Campbell was named First Team All-State, and has several colleges, notably UTEP, knocking on her door, but Campbell saw Baylor as a better fit.

"I just fell in love with it," said Campbell.  "The coach is amazing, the girls are amazing. I went for an unofficial visit this past weekend, and I don't know... I just knew it's where I wanted to go."

33-3 Coronado head coach Raul Lawrence added, "Committing to Baylor... You know, that's probably one of the biggest scholarships we've had. We're very blessed to have Campbell here because of the type of player she is. In game situations, obviously, she's definitely our go-to hitter."

Campbell will lead Coronado in the second round of the playoffs, Friday November 3 against Mansfield at Midland Lee High School.  Just a junior, she's hoping to help the T-Birds advance, and help the team grow this year and next. "I want to remembered here as a leader and a good person... And a fun person to be around. Also someone that people look up to."
