BUIES CREEK — Individual and team winners for the 2020 CAMMYS, the annual awards celebration that showcases the best of Campbell University athletics for the previous year, have been announced.

Established in 2011 under the guidance of former Athletics Director Bob Roller, the CAMMYS are organized by the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, which consists of student-athletes from CU’s 21 NCAA Division I intercollegiate athletics programs.

Traditionally, the CAMMYS are held on campus as a banquet and multimedia awards show. However, due to the spread of the coronavirus, this year’s CAMMYS 9 nominees and winners were unveiled on a daily basis through Campbell athletics’ social media feeds on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
