She is planning to Major in Elementary Education at Mount Mercy.

"After we visited I new that is where I wanted to go especially for my major and volleyball is a plus," said Campbell.

The Mustangs are coached by Deb Marlin. Marlin became head women's volleyball coach in June 2013 after serving as associate head coach at Mount Mercy since 2006. She guided the Mustangs to the first NAIA national tournament berth in school history in 2015.

Marlin has been involved in volleyball at the high school, college and club levels for most of the past 20 years. Marlin prepped at Cedar Rapids Kennedy and played collegiately at Morningside College, setting single-season and career records for the Cougars and Chiefs.

Marlin previously served as head volleyball coach at Kirkwood Community College, where she was named NJCAA Region V Coach of the Year while leading the Eagles to a top-five finish at the national tournament. She is also an invited clinician at several area summer camps.

The Mustangs closed out their 2018 season with a 20-14 record. They were 7-11 in their Heart of America Athletic Conference.
