ABOUT LAKELAND

Prior to attending Lakeland Community College, Shannon McBride was an award-winning softball and volleyball player at Brush High School in Lyndhurst, Ohio. Shannon and her Brush Arc teammates won both the 1996 and 1997 Greater Cleveland Conference Volleyball Championship and she won the prestigious Jim Whitelaw Sportsmanship and Integrity Award in 1998. Shannon wore the number “7” during her four years at Brush and at Lakeland.

LAKELAND V-BALL COACHING STAFF STUDENT-ATHLETES 2012 IN REVIEW HISTORY/RECORDS

As a freshman at Lakeland, she was named OCCAC Player of the Week two times and garnered First Team All-Conference accolades. She was also the runner-up for OCCAC Player of the Year and won the Team MVP Award that same year after helping the Lakers capture their first OCCAC volleyball championship.

Shannon broke her ankle very early into the 1999 season and missed several games. Even so she served as the team’s co-captain and earned honors as Lakeland’s MVP and NJCAA Regional MVP before the end of the season. Lakeland’s women finished second in the OCCAC that year but went on to win both the OCCAC Tournament and the ALEXA KENDIG, SANYA DOMINICK, MELISSA ECK Runners-Up trophy at the Genesee Women’s Invitational Volleyball Tournament. According to her coaches, Shannon was an extremely talented “lefty.” Her heart was always in the game, she always knew where the ball was, she played consistently, and she knew how to lead a team to victory. All of those critical assets made her a valuable contributor at all times. In her final season Shannon was ranked inside the top-10 in the country with a .380 “kill” percentage.
