Southridge's McKelle Meek wins Prep Girl Basketball Player of the Year
As a senior, McKelle Meek had to step up like never before.
With former teammate and Oregon Player of the Year Cameron Brink transferred away to Mountainside, Meek took on an even greater leadership role with the Skyhawks and proved she was up to the task, leading Southridge to a runner-up finish in the tough-as-nails Metro League, and later, a berth in the Class 6A state tournament.
In response, Meek was named Prep Girls Basketball Player of the Year by the Oregon Sports Awards on Friday, May 22.
Previously, she was named the 2019-2020 Gatorade Oregon Girls Basketball Player of the Year, while earning Class 6A first-team all-state and Oregon Class 6A Player of the Year honors. As a senior, Meek was also named to the all-Metro League first team and was the league's Player of the Year.
Averaging 23.3 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.6 steals and 2.5 assists per game through 23 games in 2019-2020, Meek is set to attend University of Portland in the fall.
