Campbell Included In Freedom High School Athletic Hall of Fame's First Class
Jan. 18, 2007
EASTON, Pa. - Head coach Terri Dadio Campbell '92 certainly proved her coaching skills last fall after leading the Lafayette volleyball program to its most successful season in two decades. However, it was Campbell being honored for her playing days at Freedom High School in Bethlehem Township, Pa. on Jan. 4 at Starters Riverport as the institution celebrated its 40th anniversary. Campbell, a standout high school and later collegiate athlete at Lafayette, made history as a part of the inaugural class of the Freedom Athletic Hall of Fame.
"Many outstanding coaches, administrators and athletes have left their mark on Freedom High School in the last 40 years," Campbell said. "I was honored to be selected as a part of the inaugural class of the Athletic Hall of Fame."
Campbell was among 11 inductees, five of which were student-athletes. A 1988 graduate of Freedom, Campbell gathered a wealth of awards following her senior season on the basketball and volleyball courts. Along with Most Valuable Player laurels on both teams, Campbell was named the Senior Female Athlete of the Year by Freedom and then honored by the City of Bethlehem in 1988 as the Female Athlete of the Year.
The Lehigh Valley native remains the third all-time leading scorer in Freedom women's basketball history with 1,294 points and led the Patriots to the District Championship as a junior and district playoffs as a senior. Her career continued as a four-year letterwinner and two-year captain under then-Lafayette head coach Pat Fisher. Campbell ranks sixth all-time in scoring (1,283) and is one of just 13 one thousand-point scorers in the Leopards' 35-year history. She also ranks fifth in career steals (199) and eighth in assists (217).
A two-time first team all-conference volleyball player, Campbell was a four-year starter as an outside hitter and middle blocker on the volleyball court at Freedom.
Following a successful seven-year coaching stint as the head basketball and volleyball coach at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Va., Campbell became Lafayette's first full-time head volleyball coach in 2002. She has since turned in back-to-back winning seasons and had the Leopards in their first Patriot League Tournament since 1995 last fall.
