Brian Campbell (’84) led the Department of State’s tennis team to its third consecutive Intergovernmental Agency Tennis League Doubles Championship title. Campbell, a former top singles and doubles player, was twice named All-American and is a member of Truman State University’s Athletics Hall of Fame. He is a special advisor in the Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs.

“Brian is among the finest players to have represented the Department in my many years of coaching the team,” said team coach John Wilson. “We finished number one in a very competitive league, and Brian came through in the clutch time and time again.”

Founded in 1932, the Intergovernmental Agency Tennis League is said to be the longest-running athletic competition in the federal government. It was the Department’s ninth championship win, a record bested only by the Army and Navy teams, which hold 25 and 15 titles, respectively.
