LOS ANGELES - The fifth member of the LMU women's soccer 2013 recruiting class is goalkeeper Mikayla Campbell. Campbell is a local player who comes to LMU from Bishop Alemany High School. Campbell is a two-sport athlete who competed both in varsity soccer and volleyball for the Warriors. Her leaping ability, honed on the volleyball court, will serve her well to pick balls out of the corners as the newest goalkeeper on this year's Lions squad.
Campbell was named as the top goalkeeper in the Mission League as a senior and averaged seven saves per game throughout her high school season. Campbell also competed for the Valley United Club team coached by Hugh Donald. In addition to being a force on the field, Campbell also has achieved excellence throughout high school in the classroom. Campbell was a member of the Principal's Honor Roll through all four years in high school and also received the Scholar Athlete Achievement Award in all four years in high school.
"We are excited to have Mikayla join our goalkeepers this fall," said LMU Head Coach Michelle Myers. "Her tremendous athletic ability and work ethic coupled with a day-to-day competitive goalkeeping environment and a great goalkeeping instructor in coach Joslyn Shoop, will allow Mikayla to reach new heights as a keeper and add another dimension to our group of goalkeepers."
