2014-15 (Outlook) 
April Campbell plans to build off the success of her second season at Nebraska in 2013-14, as she continues to gain confidence and experience. The sophomore from Bellevue, Neb., bowled her way into a top-five position in the Husker lineup as a redshirt freshman and helped NU to a runner-up finish at the NCAA Championships.

Campbell will likely provide valuable depth to the Huskers in 2014-15, and could contend again for spot in Nebraska's starting lineup.

“When April turns it on, she can really bowl with the best of them,” Nebraska Coach Bill Straub said. “She just needs to work on her consistency.” 

2013-14 (Redshirt Freshman)
After redshirting her freshman year, Campbell produced a breakout 2013-14 campaign. In her first collegiate tournament, she rolled a 203 average to place third in the individual standings and earn a spot on the Crusader Classic All-Tournament team in Valparaiso, Ind. (Nov. 8). Her performance fueled the Huskers to a second-place finish among 12 teams.

Campbell impressed at the Big Red Invitational (Nov. 21-23) at Sun Valley Lanes in Lincoln. Her performance at Nebraska's only home meet of the season solidified her spot in the Huskers' starting lineup.

Campbell delivered again at the Prairie View A&M Invitational in Arlington, Texas (Jan. 31-Feb. 2), where she averaged a 204 and bowled a high of 224. Her eighth-place individual finish helped the Huskers to a title in a 12-team field that featured seven NTCA top-10 teams.

Campbell earned academic All-Big Ten honors and was named to the inaugural Tom Osborne Citizenship Team, which honors student-athletes for their outstanding commitment to community service.  

2012-13 (Redshirt)
Campbell joined the Huskers after performing at a high level at Bellevue West High School in Bellevue, Neb. Campbell displayed plenty of potential, while using her freshman year as a redshirt season.

A standout in the classroom, Campbell earned spots on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the fall and spring semesters of 2012-13.

Before Nebraska (Bellevue West)
Campbell was a standout for the Thunder Birds, capturing all-state honors as a senior in 2011-12. She carried a 201 average as a senior, including a personal-best 299 three times.

The daughter of Jim and Diane Campbell, April was born on Nov. 2, 1993. April is majoring in accounting at Nebraska. She earned academic All-Big Ten honors in 2014 and is a three-time member of the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll. She also claimed a spot on the inaugural Tom Osborne Citizenship Team in 2014.
