The 2013 season will be the 12th for Terri Dadio Campbell '92 at the helm of the women's volleyball program. Campbell - the first full-time head coach in program history - has led the Leopards to their most successful seasons and has mentored some of the Patriot League's finest student-athletes.
The 2012 Leopards finished the year at 9-17, going 2-12 in Patriot League play. Senior co-captain Sarah Frohnapfel finished off her career with 7.55 sets per set, controlling the offensive attack for Lafayette. Fellow co-captain Kaitlynn Zoller filled up the stat sheet all year as she was third on the team in kills (176), service aces (25), digs (246) and blocks (44).
Lafayette's 2011 campaign saw the club finish 10-17, doubling its win total from the previous year and completing a sweep of Navy for the first time since 2006. The Leopards' non-league slate was highlighted by winning the Friar Classic at Providence. Kaitlynn Zoller '13 was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player after leading Lafayette to wins over Coppin State, St. Francis (N.Y.) and host Providence, who the Leopards swept to clinch the tournament title. Additionally, the 2011 Leopards led the Patriot League with 12 student-athletes landing on the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll.
The 2010 season was the senior campaign for two of Campbell's most prolific student-athletes, Kayly Elmer '11 and Katrina Racibarskas '11. Both ended their careers ranked among the top five all-time in kills and the top 10 in sets played In a Lafayette uniform.
In 2009, the Leopards finished with 14 wins, including a season sweep of Patriot League opponent Holy Cross. That accomplishment came following the 2008 and 2007 seasons during which Lafayette combined for 24 victories. The 2006 campaign was another historic one, as the team reached the Patriot League Tournament for the first time in more than 10 years en route to finishing the fall with 18 victories.
Campbell took the reins in 2002 and, in her second season, she guided the Leopards to their first Patriot League win since 1997.
A former standout student-athlete for the Leopards, Campbell returned to College Hill after seven seasons as the head coach at Division III Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Va. Campbell compiled a 159-48 record (.768), culminating with the Generals' first-ever NCAA tournament appearance in her final season. During her tenure at Washington and Lee, Campbell's teams won five regular-season titles in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference and four ODAC Tournament crowns.
Campbell was recognized by her peers as the ODAC Coach of the Year in 1995, 1997 and 1998. She was also selected as the Coach of the Year in the state of Virginia in both 1995 and 1998. While at Washington and Lee, Campbell also served as the Generals' women's basketball coach and a physical education professor.
Campbell has also patrolled the sidelines as a Division I basketball coach, serving as an assistant at Princeton in the 2000-01 and 2001-02 seasons. Previously, she was on the women's basketball coaching staff at The College of New Jersey, where she also earned her master's degree in Special Education.
A Bethlehem native, Campbell began her volleyball career at Freedom High School. She turned her attention to basketball at Lafayette, where she was a three-time All-Patriot League honoree and currently ranks seventh all-time in scoring with 1,283 career points. Campbell served as an assistant volleyball coach at Freedom in her final three seasons as a student-athlete on College Hill.
Campbell is an active member of the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA), the Keystone Region Volleyball Association (KRVA) and USA Volleyball.
Campbell and her husband, Shawn, reside in Bethlehem with their son, Casey, and daughter, Carly.
