Record books were rewritten on Saturday at Golden Gymnasium, and although it was Grand Canyon coming away with a 63-49 win over the Sea Lions, PLNU senior forward Andrea Campbell set new school and Pacific West Conference marks in blocks with 12.
Campbell previously beat the record her sophomore year with 11 blocks – this time she solidified her best just a bit more.
Campbell matched the previous conference record of nine in the first half, before finishing with 12 rejections. She helped lead a valiant effort by the Sea Lions (4-6, 2-2 PacWest) to hang with the ‘Lopes (12-4, 4-1 PacWest).
We asked Campbell a few questions after her record-breaking game:
Did you know you were close to beating the record during the game?
I had no idea. I knew I blocked a lot of shots, but I had no idea it was so many.
How did it feel when you knew you beat the record?
It wasn’t as special as it felt when I broke the record my sophomore year. Breaking your own record isn’t as exciting as breaking someone else’s.
What has been the biggest highlight for you as a player of this season?
The biggest highlight for me this season was our game against Dixie State. I had a double-double if 15 rebounds and 13 points and I also had 7 blocked shots. I think it was the most efficient game I’ve played this season.
You’re a senior this year – looking back, what has competing as a Sea Lion meant to you?
Playing basketball for Point Loma has been an awesome experience to say the least. What means the most to me during my career here is the relationships that I have built with past and present teammates. I have met and bonded with some awesome people that I will cherish for the rest of my life.
What are you plans after graduation?
Being a broadcast journalism major, my plan is to work in TV news production. I interned with ESPN last semester and I have an internship with CW 6News this semester and we will see where this takes me.
