Four York-Adams League girls' basketball players earn all-state recognition

Gettysburg's Anne Bair, right, is an all-state first-team selection in Class 5-A.

When it comes to stuffing the stat sheet, few players do it better than Gettysburg’s Annie Bair.

Those numbers are probably a big reason why the Warriors junior has been named a first-team Class 5-A all-state selection by Pennsylvania’s sports writers.

Bair is one of four York-Adams League standouts to earn all-state recognition. Joining Bair on the 5-A list is Spring Grove freshman Laila Campbell, who was a second-team pick.

Delone Catholic’s Giana Hoddinott is a second-team pick in 4-A, while Red Lion’s Makiah Shaw is a third-team selection in 6-A.

For Bair, Hoddinott and Shaw, it marks the second consecutive year that each has earned all-state honors. All three were third-team picks in 2020.

Like Bair, Campbell, Hoddinott and Shaw have also put up some standout statistics.

Spring Grove's Laila Campbell is a second-team all-state pick in Class 5-A.

The 5-foot, 7-inch Bair, who has committed to play at the NCAA Division I level for Manhattan, finished second in the league in scoring at 16.5 points per game while averaging 5.7 assists, 4.9 rebounds and 3.1 steals per game. The point guard helped Gettysburg to a 19-3 overall record, including a District 3 5-A title game appearance. She was the Y-A Division II Player of the Year and has already passed the 1,000-point mark for her career.

Campbell, meanwhile, made an immediate impact in her first year with the Rockets. The 6-footer averaged 15.9 points, 10.3 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.3 steals per game. She pumped her scoring average to more than 20 points per game in the postseason. She helped Spring Grove to 21-3 record, including Y-A D-I and District 3 5-A championships. She was one of three freshmen to earn all-state honors.

The 5-9 Hoddinott, meanwhile, averaged 16.5 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 3.3 steals per game in helping Delone to District 3 4-A and Y-A D-III crowns. The Squirettes finished 20-2. As a freshman in 2019, Hoddinott helped Delone win a PIAA 3-A state championship. Hoddinott was the Y-A D-III Player of the Year.

Delone Catholic's Giana Hoddinott, center, is a second-team all-state pick in Class 4-A.

The 6-foot Shaw averaged 16.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.1 steals and 1.0 blocks per game. She helped the Lions to a 14-6 overall record. She reached the 1,000-point mark for her career in her final game. Shaw committed to play on the NCAA Division II level for Millersville University.
