Former Campbell Hall girls’ basketball standout Lauren Holiday has taken a medical retirement from basketball at UCLA.

She will remain with the team as an undergraduate assistant.

Holiday suffered from multiple concussions and was the subject of a Times’ story last February looking at head injuries among women athletes.

She is the sister of NBA guard Jrue Holiday. Her younger brother, Aaron, a senior at Campbell Hall, has committed to UCLA for basketball.
