COACH SMITH ON JACKIE:
“Jackie has already joined our team this spring and shown what she can do on the field. She’s a very talented player and is fitting right in with the returning players. She had prepared well and brought a tremendous level of fitness with her to be able to perform at a top level. She has emerged as a young leader and it’s exciting to see the potential she has already shown. We are looking forward to seeing her grow from here.”
