COACH SMITH ON KAILEY: “Kailey is one of the best players to come out of the state of South Carolina in some time. She played at the same club as one of our former standouts, Blakely Mattern, and Kailey is following in her footsteps as the next great defender. She’s been a national pool player, and she is working her way back from an injury.”
