Name: Brenna Campagna


High School: Manheim Township


College: Wake Forest, currently undecided but looking at Computer Science and Economics, minor in Spanish


Position: Midfield/Defense


Extracurricular Activities: “I am actively involved in my high schools Mini-Thon by serving as a Design Head. I am also the class of 2024 Treasurer, I have been a four year student council member, and am a member of National Honors Society. As well as playing on my high schools field hockey team I play on the high school lacrosse team. I also play club field hockey and club lacrosse, while helping coach for both teams. Lastly, I am a volunteer tutor at my school.”


Why Wake? “I chose Wake Forest because I felt like the university was a perfect blend of the competitive field hockey and rigorous academics I was looking for. As a little girl I fell in love with field hockey, so having the opportunity to play for the Wake Forest field hockey team is a dream come true. I’ve always had big aspirations so I hope to help the team win an ACC conference championship and maybe even a national championship. Between the facilities and supportive team culture, I know Wake Forest will help me reach my full potential as an athlete. As for the academics, Wake Forest offers 50+ majors and 60 minors which is perfect for me as I’m currently undecided and still exploring career options. I also noted the amazing study abroad program Wake Forest offers. With five of every eight students studying abroad, I’m excited to continue researching the international programs and the three residential-academic houses abroad.”


Describe a field hockey memory you won’t forget. And, why? “This year we played Penn Manor for the second time after losing to them 3-4 in overtime. Not only would this rematch game win us the section title, but it would kick Penn Manor out of the league tournament for the first time in 17 years. We went on to win that game and the League championship for the first time in program history! But the exciting victory was just a cherry on top to a more meaningful night. It was the first time I got the chance to play for something bigger than myself. A few weeks ago we lost Mr. Michaud, an extremely loved middle school teacher, to cancer. We spent weeks at school raising money for his family by selling black pins for Melanoma. Finally, on October 17th we got to play for his legacy. Families from all throughout the district made the choice to show up and support the Michaud family. We had his daughter be an honorable captain and played with “Team Michaud” ribbons in our hair. It was unbelievable the way my team fed off the crowds energy during the game. I’ll never forget what an honor it was to play for something so special, as we all knew Mr. Michaud was watching over us smiling.”
