Camryn Alexander is a junior point guard at Tonkawa High School and a member of the varsity basketball team. Alexander also plays softball, a lot of softball. 

“What I like most about this team is they’re a fun group to be around. We always have a good time on and off the court, whether it’s beating a rival or celebrating my birthday at our team dinners,” said Alexander. “The best part of being a student-athlete at Tonkawa High School is that everyone in the community is very supportive.”

This season Tonkawa is off to a 7-6 start in Class 2A with quality wins over Newkirk, Crescent, Woodland, and Pawnee. The start isn’t exactly what Alexander had hoped for this year, but she is optimistic the team will continue to improve. 

“We’re off to an okay start but there’s still room to grow. We haven’t met our full potential yet,” said Alexander.

Academics are a priority for Alexander. In fact, they come before she ever steps onto the court or softball field. 

“Academics are always before sports. It’s always been a dream of mine to play at the next level, so my grades are something I have to take seriously,” Alexander said. 

She is a member of National Honor Society and plays softball for a traveling team. When she’s not on the road playing softball or in the gym playing basketball, you can find Alexander spending time with her family. A very big family. 

“My family is the biggest influence in my life. My parents and my five older siblings for all the love and support and pushing me to be the best athlete and person I can be,” said Alexander. 

Look for this junior point guard to finish the season strong as Tonkawa wraps up the regular season with a game on the road to Chisholm before coming home for the final two regular season games against Blackwell on February 8th and Newkirk on February 11th. The district tournament is set for February 15th-16th.
