During the recruiting process, Adison Campbell of South Stanly High School checked all of the blocks for Sandhills Community College volleyball coach Alicia Riggan.

The 5-foot-7 setter/right side, who signed a letter of intent to play for the Lady Flyers next fall last Friday, earned all-conference and team MVP honors as a junior and senior for the Rowdy Rebel Bulls. She also earned all-conference and all-district recognition the past two seasons as a shortstop and pitcher for the softball team that came within one win of making it to the NCHSAA 1A State Championship series last spring.

The daughter of Chip and Linda Campbell served as a team captain for both squads and is a member of National Honor Society and National Technical Honor Society.

"We are excited to have Adison join our Flyer program," Riggan says. "She brings a knowledge of the game and a competitive drive. She can set and hit which will be great additions for our team."

Campbell was credited with over 900 assists during her high school volleyball career. She was second on her team in digs last season, tied for second in total blocks and third in service aces.

Her other extracurricular activities have included Art Club, Spanish Club and assistant coach for the 14 and under Ultra Volleyball Club team. She plans to major in science in the Sandhills transfer program.

As reasons for selecting Sandhills, Campbell said that she was impressed by the environment, the coaching staff and the work ethic of the volleyball team.
