Defending Big South champ Campbell announced the hiring of former Lord Botetourt and UVa golfer Lyndsey Hunnell as an assistant women’s golf coach Thursday.

After graduating from UVa in 2018, Hunnell joined the Xavier team as a graduate transfer. She tied for eighth at the 2019 Big East tournament, helping Xavier win the Big East title for the first time. Xavier advanced to an NCAA regional.

Hunnell competed in the 2016 U.S. Women’s Amateur.

Campbell, which is located in Buies Creek, North Carolina, has made the NCAA regionals the past eight years. The team needed a new assistant because C.C. Buford left to become the head coach at East Carolina.
