The National High School Coaches Association (NHSCA) is pleased to announce Kethlin Campbell of Shelbyville Central High School in Shelbyville, Tennessee as the 2017 NHSCA National High School Senior Girls’ Track and Athlete of the Year.



Campbell captured three gold medals this past year by winning the 100- and 200 meter dash titles, plus the long jump at the Class AAA championships.  Her winning jump of 20-feet 3.5 inches was the sixth best in the nation in the spring during the 2016-17 school year. Campbell also won the Tennessee Indoor State Championship in the 200-meter dash and she’s the 60 meter state record holder.  Campbell won over 30 medals during his scholastic career.



Campbell, who owns a 3.98 GPA, is a member of the National Honor Society and National Society of High School Scholars.  She’ll attend Duke on a track and field scholarship.



Campbell was also Gatorade’s Tennessee Track and Field Athlete of the Year.



“Kethlin is an excellent example what this award stands for,” said Eric Hess, Executive Director of the NHSCA.  “Kethlin has excelled on in sports and in the classroom.  We congratulate her on an outstanding high school career and wish her good luck in college.”



Campbell is the first Tennessee student-athlete to win the NHSCA Girls’ Track and Field Athlete of the Year Award. 


This the 18th year straight year the NHSCA will honor achievers in the high school athletic community nationwide with its Athlete of the Year Award in 20 boys’ and girls’ sports.  Other winners will be announced throughout the rest of the 2016-2017 school year.



Each one of the honorees will receive a beautiful trophy, plus they will be honored in the National High School Sports Hall of Fame Museum that the NHSCA will be building in the near future.
