The additions of Alexis Bailey, a 5-6 guard from Leesburg, Va., and Georgia Campbell, a 6-1 power forward from Brampton, Ontario, bring the roster to 12.
Bailey left her mark as a high school athlete, becoming the first player to score 1,000 points and the first from Tuscarora High School to sign with a Division I program. She played a vital role her senior season, helping Tuscarora reach a 22-4 record and an appearance in the VHSL 5A state semifinal.
“I chose Morehead State because my goal has always been to pursue a college that would allow me to continue to play basketball, as well as offer me a quality education,” said Bailey. “Morehead State met and exceeded my expectations, and I’m excited to see what God has in store for me.”
Campbell averaged a double-double (15.0 ppg/12.0 rpg) her senior season at St. Roch Catholic Secondary School. For her performance, she received the Most Valuable Player and Outstanding Contributions to Athletics Awards from St. Roch. According to Head Coach Greg Todd, she will provide size for the Eagles, being one of three players to check in over six-feet tall.
“I like the people and atmosphere at Morehead State, it is all positive vibes,” said Campbell.
Bailey and Campbell join fellow signees Miranda Crockett, Brianna McQueen, Kay Kay Tate, and Haley-Sue Foutch. Foutch and Crockett are incoming freshmen, while Tate and McQueen are transfers.
