She shot 41.3 percent from the field in her lone season there, going 32.2 percent from three and 77.3 percent from the line. She also averaged 6.3 rebounds per game and 3.6 assists per game for a team that went 28-6 and advanced to the CCCAA State Semifinal game.

The Oxnard, Calif. native attended Oaks Christian High School in Westlake, Calif. where she was a McDonald’s All-American nominee and All-State and All-CIF Open Division honoree her senior year. She was the Marmonte League MVP and Ventura County Star Player of the Year. Campbell was selected Daily Press All-Area and led her team to the CIF State Division I Playoffs. She was also selected All-Marmonte League and All-CIF-SS Open Division her junior year. Over her four years, her team went 40-0 in Marmonte League action.
“Katie is going to be a great addition to our team,” Gonzaga head coach Lisa Fortier said. “She has the ability to stretch the defense with her perimeter shooting, and can make plays for herself and her teammates off the dribble. She has been consistently praised for her competitiveness and drive. Her length and style of play, combined with her determination, makes her a great fit for us. We are excited to welcome her to our family.”
Campbell will be immediately eligible to play for the Zags this upcoming season.
