(Tuesday, January 5; Sioux Center, Iowa) Campbell Marshall, a senior at Timothy Christian High School (Illinois), has announced her intention to attend Dordt and join the Defender  volleyball program.

“Campbell is a high-level setter who has played in many different competitive settings.  The tempo of offense that she runs and the combinations of hitting routes that she calls for her hitters will be a wonderful fit for our program this fall.  A special thanks to coaches Rick Butler and Ana Krkic for their involvement in developing Campbell’s skills.  Her desire and ability to grow in her relationship with Christ and others will fit wonderfully into our campus community and volleyball program as she lives out The Defender Way,” said Dordt volleyball coach Chad Hanson.

Marshall averaged 6.3 assists per set during the 2018 and 2019 season and totaled 969 career assists.  She was part of a 2019 sectional championship team and is listed as a 6-0 setter.

“I chose Dordt because of its commitment to developing students’ spiritual, academic and athletic growth. The atmosphere at Dordt is welcoming and encouraging. I am excited and looking forward to playing and competing with the volleyball team and coaching staff,” said Marshall.

Campbell is the daughter of Jim and Wendy Marshall of Elmhurst, Illinois. She is undecided on an intended field of study.

Dordt University in Sioux Center, Iowa, is a comprehensive Christian college rooted in the Reformed tradition. The Defender athletic program is a part of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC), American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) and the Mid-American Collegiate Hockey Association (MACHA). 

U.S. News & World Report, Money Magazine, Forbes.com, Washington Monthly, and Princeton Review all list Dordt on their best colleges lists. Dordt is home to approximately 1,500 students.
