Marleah Campbell

SCHOOL: Shawnee Mission West

Campbell led the Vikings with 18 points in their rivalry-game victory over Shawnee Mission East last Friday, which improved SM West’s record to 3-5. A Wyoming signee, Campbell is second in the Sunflower League in scoring. She averages 14.6 points per game and leads the league with nine rebounds per game.

Will Penamon

SCHOOL: Fort Osage

YEAR: Junior

Penamon broke out of a shooting slump in a big way last Saturday, nailing a three-pointer at the buzzer to lift Fort Osage to a 59-56 win over Kearney in the championship game of the Kearney Classic. Penamon scored only nine points in the game, but seven came in the final two minutes. Fort Osage has won four straight games and is 9-5 overall.
