Malcolm CampbellAthlete • Inducted 2006

Malcolm Campbell set the standard by which all other JCCC cross country athletes are measured. Campbell’s freshman season is the single-best campaign in JCCC history. He won the conference and region titles, and nearly made a clean sweep, placing second at nationals. He followed with another conference title, a runner-up region finish and a sixth-place national finish. With that finish, he became the program’s first two-time All-American in cross country. In track and field, Campbell garnered seven All-American honors, won four region titles, and four conference championships. Indoors, Campbell set the school record in the 3,000 meters and 5,000 meters, and ranked second in the mile run. Outdoors, he owned four of the top five performances all-time in the 5,000 meters and 10,000-meters, including the school record in each event. Campbell’s efforts helped JCCC cross country and track teams post four top-10 finishes in national championships during his two seasons. Campbell continued his athletic career at the University of South Florida. He went on to become a five-time Olympic Trials qualifier, and was a two-time Scottish National Champion, winning titles cross country and in the 10,000 meters. He was also a member of three world cross country teams, serving as captain on one of the teams, and was the UK indoor champion in the 3,000 meters and 5,000 meters.
