Southridge senior Cameron Brink, one of the top senior girls basketball recruits in the nation, will be taking her talents to the other end of Barrows Road this season.
The 6-foot-4 Brink, who led the Skyhawks to 6A championships as a freshman and sophomore and a runner-up finish last season, will be enrolling at Mountainside for her senior year. Her transfer was first reported by the Beaverton Valley Times.
Brink, who has committed to play in college at Stanford, has played in the Southridge program since the sixth grade. She averaged 20.8 points per game as a junior, shooting 64 percent from the field and 77 percent on free throws.
She will join a rising team at Mountainside, which played its first varsity season in 2018-19 after the school opened the previous year. The young Mavericks, coached by Glen Lee, finished 14-11 last season, 5-7 in the Metro League, falling in the first round of the state playoffs.
Southridge was slated to return all of its players next season for another run at a title. Now the Skyhawks face an uphill battle after losing their top player.
