Campbell is one of several talented freshmen on the Lakers’ swimming team this season. Last week, he showed his abilities in a pair of Mercyhurst Prep victories.
Campbell was particularly effective in the distance events Feb. 16 in the Lakers’ win over Meadville. He finished first in the 200-yard freestyle (2 minutes, 0.76 seconds) and 500 freestyle (5:24.49) and also led off the winning 200 medley relay and 400 freestyle relay.
Against Strong Vincent Feb. 13, he swam legs on each of the three winning relays.
Campbell won a close vote against Iroquois’ Dalton Zebrak to become the second Mercyhurst Prep boy to claim the Breakout Swimmer of the Week this season. J.J. Mackowski was honored in January.
