Derby Queen – Tatum Campbell
The 2020 Derby Queen Tatum Campbell, a senior at Northland Pines High School, was brought up with
snowmobiles since her dad, Michael Campbell Jr. raced them. Since her dad was a racer, Tatum and her
dad are able to bond over their shared passion and interest of snowmobiles and snowmobile racing.
During the summer, Tatum spends her time competing at horse shows locally in Conover, Eagle
River, Norway, Michigan, and sometimes down in the southern part of Wisconsin. She also enjoys
helping younger kids at the barn with everything from learning how to care for a horse to riding them.
“Being a Derby Queen is an amazing opportunity for me. Ever since I was a little girl. I have
always looked up to previous Queens and Princesses and have always wanted to become one. It’s
incredible to be one of the faces of such a great place and I will represent it proudly.”
Kylee Swendson, a Sophomore at Northland Pines High School, has been riding snowmobile since she was about three years old. Her love for the sport led to her competing in her first snowmobile race when she was four and eventually led to Kylee racing a combination of snowmobiles for eight years in a Vintage race series. Outside of snowmobiling, Kylee is the treasurer of HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America), the Varsity volleyball manager for Northland Pines High School, the Youth Representative for Oneida County for KAOS (Kids and Adults on Sleds). She also helps raise money for a non profit organization called Pink Ribbon Riders that helps raise money for those battling breast cancer and gifts them with financial support to assist them with their needs. “As do many races, all of these experiences have led me to be that child, and now young adult, sitting in the box seats watching the annual Derby races and admiring the Derby Royalty hoping that one day I could be one of them. I believe that I will be a great Derby Princess,” she adds, “because I feel very passionate about the sport, along with being an avid rider. It is my honor to serve on the 2020 Derby Royalty Court.”
