Campbell enters her third season as first-ever head coach for the Terrier Cheer/STUNT program in 2019.

In the team’s inaugural year, the Terriers posted a record of 7-5, including victories of Purdue University, Tiffin, and Olivet. Hiram was ranked as high as 10th in the National Division II/III STUNT rankings.

In six of Hiram’s seven wins in 2018, the team tallied at least 10 points per victory. Hiram then capped off the season with a perfect 15-0 victory over Tiffin in their final game of the year.

Under Campbell’s leadership, sophomore Alex Murray became the school’s first-ever STUNT All-American. Murray was one of three players on the team to amass over 100 victories, leading the team with 109. She also posted a 15.917 rating and a winning percentage of .589.

In her first year of recruiting, Campbell brought in over 20 student-athletes from around the country to compete for the Terriers.

Campbell joined the Terrier coaching staff after spending a year as the assistant coach with the University of the Ozarks in Clarksville, Arkansas.

Campbell was a four-year member of the Alma College Cheer/STUNT program that began during her freshman season in 2012. From 2013-15, the Scots placed second at the National Cheer Association Championships.

A two-year captain, Campbell led Alma to qualifications in the National STUNT Championships, where the team placed fourth in 2014 and third in 2015-16. Campbell was named a STUNT All-American in three consecutive seasons.
