CARROLLTON, Ga. – Women’s basketball head coach Scott Groninger had a tall task in replacing five graduating seniors from his program, and today he announced the newest addition to the 2019 recruiting class as the Wolves add junior college transfer, Tahya Campbell.
Campbell comes to Carrollton via North Iowa Area Community College, where she spent the past two seasons. As a freshman in 2017-18, Campbell played in 19 games, averaging 3.7 points per game, but shot 47.1 percent from the field and 37.5 percent from behind the arc.
As the lone sophomore on this past season’s NIACC squad that reached the NJCAA National Tournament, Campbell played in 35 games, averaging 12.0 points per game while pulling down 4.7 rebounds per contest. From the field, Campbell was a 35.5 percent shooter, including a 29.8 percent clip from three-point range. Campbell was named NJCAA All-Region XI Second Team at the conclusion of the season.
“We’re excited to add Tahya to our roster for next season,” said Groninger, “She brings a lot to both sides of the ball as she can shoot threes and her defensive ability to draw an offensive foul on the other end of the court is second to none.”
Originally from Waterloo, Iowa, Campbell is a graduate of Waterloo West High School.
Campbell joins Lanee Edwards and Jailyn Shaw in the 2019 class. Edwards and Shaw are both incoming freshmen that signed back in November 2018. Shaw was part of the GHSA AAAA State Championship team at Carver Columbus this winter, while Edwards helped her Southwest Dekalb team reach the Final Four of the AAAAA State Tournament.
