With the 2011-12 season around the corner, it is time to take a closer look at this year's University of Maryland Eastern Shore women's basketball team. Hawk Hysteria is now nine days away and helping countdown the days will be the Meet The Lady Hawks: The Locker Room Series. Each player took time out to tell us a little about themselves and their anticipation and excitement for this upcoming season. Everyday leading to Hawk Hysteria on October 21 a different player interview will be posted. Yesterday Sha-Kiyla Finney sat down for Day 4 of The Locker Room Series.

Today we catch up with freshman Shawnee Sweeney out of Chester, Virginia. Sweeney, a 5'7" guard, averaged 15.3 points a game at Thomas Dale High School. She led the Knights to three straight regular season and tournament Central District championships from 2009 to 2011. They tanked #6 in the state of Virginia in 2010 and #8 in 2011, cumulating a 71-12 record in final three years. She was named to 1st-Team All-District and All-Metro 2nd-Team her senior year.
