Kailyn Campbell was a four year starting 1B/DP and 5-tool player at Central Washington University (NCAA Division II). In 2017 she graduated as the school’s all time leader in hits (292), stolen base percentage (.963), games played (198), games started (197), runs scored (170), doubles (64), RBI (197) and total bases (451). Her 197 career RBI and total bases (451) are also the all-time records for the Great Northwest Athletic Conference (GNAC).

In her senior year Kailyn had a career year leading the GNAC in nearly every offensive category, highlighted by a .497 batting average with 26 doubles, 13 HR and 56 RBI. She also had 21 BB which contributed to her ridiculous .548 OBP. On the base paths she was also a threat swiping 16 bags. Over her four year career Kailyn hit a remarkable .427 with 31 home runs.

Kailyn first took her career overseas in 2018 to play for the Wr. Neustadt Crazy Chicklets of Austria and again in 2019 for a partial season, all while working on her master’s degree. In 2019 Kailyn was named the league’s Best Batter and Gold Glove Third base after leading her team to the championship series for the first time. She also earned a Gold Glove at third base in her first season in 2018.

Kailyn on why she wants to continue with her career overseas:

“I’m finishing up my Master’s degree in the next couple months (spring 2020) and all I want to do is play. Ever since I went to Austria the first time, it’s pretty much all I’ve been thinking about. I want to play and I want to play for at least a few seasons in the winter and summer if I can”

“It has always always been a dream of mine to keep playing past college. I would love to continue my career overseas and meet new people who share the same passion for the game that I do. I love learning about and experiencing other countries. Combining my love for travel and softball would be the best of both worlds. It would also be very rewarding to help the game grow in other countries besides our own.”

I had the pleasure to secure Kailyn for our 2018 and 2019 lineup. From the first day she has been an outstanding player with the character to match, helping to push our team to a new level. Her nickname - the tower of power - says it all. Also her instinct and her athletic skills on the field are one of a kind. Infield, outfield, hitting and baserunning - she can do it all. She is a fierce competitor, driven and hardworking. Besides that she is mentally tough and passionate about the game of softball. As a true team player she always tries to get better in whatever she does and is excited about the opportunity to help those around her to become better softball players. She is the most organized person I have met in the game. She has a plan for everything and with her passion for coaching she will be a great asset to any coaching staff. As a person she took our hearts by storm and she will do the same wherever she goes to play in the future. She makes friends easily, is honest, reliable and will be the best teammate you can find for your players. With her love for travel and to embrace new cultures and people she will be a real gem for every team on and off the field. Even above the many skills Kailyn has on the field, her great attitude stands out even more. It is a pleasure to watch her play but also to coach her. I give her my highest recommendation.

Kailyn Campbell can do it all! I was a head coach in the SEC for 6 years and she would have been an All-SEC player. She is very versatile in that she can play any infield position and also go on the grass and compete at a high level. Kailyn plays a high level of catch (70 mph overhand throw) and her glove is outstanding. She competes in the batter's box and has power to all fields. Her softball IQ is off the charts. She was my graduate assistant for a year at CWU. She is a student of the game and is always looking for ways to get better and continue to grow as a player and teammate. Great work ethic, character, and brings a love for the game to the ballpark everyday. She can play at the very highest level!!
