William Penn University Inducts BG Campbell into Athletic Hall of Fame


William Penn University is pleased to announce that BG Campbell, class of 1975, will be inducted into the University’s Athletic Hall of Fame during the 2017 homecoming week.

Campbell, a former member of the William Penn Golf Team, was described by teammates as one of the most influential members of the team. He was named to the All-Iowa Conference Tournament Team three years in a row, and during his final season, Campbell led the program to its second conference title and only outright-title in program history, winning the 1974 Iowa Conference Tournament. His on-course poise and confident demeanor served as an example to all on the team on how to navigate through the long rounds associated with collegiate play. Campbell competed for the navy and gold from 1971–1974 on the course and was a valuable part of the most successful men’s golf teams in school history.

“This is such a nice honor and I am really excited to be a part of it (Athletic Hall of Fame),” said Campbell. “I had a nice time at the college and great teammates which made for a great experience.”

William Penn will honor Campbell at the 2017 Athletic Hall of Fame Reception held during homecoming week. Campbell will receive his award on Saturday, September 30, at 9:30 a.m. at the Penn Activity Center (PAC). He will be officially inducted to the Hall of Fame during halftime of the William Penn University vs. Avila University football game at the Lacey Complex Stadium.
