North Highlands, Calif. Foothill High School
Dobbins averaged 20 points and 15 rebounds per game during her senior campaign at Foothill High School while playing for head coach Glasco Cameron. Dobbins earned most valuable player honors all four years of high school. She is a two-time recipient of the best offensive player award for her team and a two-time recipient of the best defensive player award for her team.

Dobbins, a true student athlete, has earned honor roll designation for two years. She will major in international business at SFCC.
“The first thing I looked at was the environment,” said Dobbins. “The class sizes were also important, as well as the basketball program.”
“Lawre’ll is a very athletic young lady,” said Head Coach Kevin Bucher. “She runs several events in track and field. She has nice size and can catch the ball in the post and score.”
Atlanta, Ga. Lakeside High School
Jones averaged 12 points, eight rebounds, and six blocked shots during her senior campaign. She played for head coach Angela Thompson.
Jones received numerous awards throughout her high school career at Lakeside including the best defensive player award, most improved player, and best all-around player. She received the player of the month award as well as the Viking Award, which is given to the outstanding senior on the team. She also received the captain’s honor for two years.
‘I’m looking for a good education and a family oriented school,” said Jones. “I want to have the full college experience.”
“Tiana is a very athletic forward,” said Bucher. “She can run the floor and be out on the press. She can also rebound and block shots. We are very pleased to have her here.”
Jones will major in biology with a minor in chemistry at SFCC.

“Apiphany is a competitor,” said Bucher. “She is very well coached, very aggressive. She can score inside and outside. I think she will really have a great career here at SFCC.”
