The sophomore guard has led Springfield to a 3-0 start to the season. The Blue Devils also are undefeated in the Northern Lakes League at 2-0.
Harris scored 13 points in the team's season-opening 58-28 win against Wauseon. She then had 19 points Dec. 1 in another victory for the Blue Devils, who are picked to finish second in the NLL.
The 5-foot-9 point guard scored 16 points in Tuesday’s 42-40 win against Napoleon.
“Cierra’s athletic ability and skill set makes her a special player,” coach Keith McClure said. “She is able to play all five positions, and can score on the inside and outside.”
Nicknamed “Cie Cie,” Harris started on the varsity as a freshman and averaged 7.3 points, 3.0 assists, and 4.0 rebounds per game.
“Some of her strengths include dribbling, passing, and rebounding,” McClure said. “She also is great at setting her teammates up.”
McClure said Harris has the ability to play in college and already has received interest from Division I schools. He said Harris has matured on and off the court and has excelled in the classroom.
“I've coached a lot good players, like [former Ohio State star] Will Buford at Libbey,” McClure said. “She has skills. She's one of a kind.”
He said Harris has a good-size frame and sees the floor well.
“She means a lot to the team,” McClure said. “Cierra truly gives us the opportunity to mix and match different line ups as well as play up-tempo basketball.”
