In her second year with the Lady Arrows Fast Pitch team, Kam Smith has become a foundational player for Clinton, and after graduation, she will continue her performance in Alabama.
On Friday, Nov. 17, Smith signed a letter of intent with Coastal Alabama Community College to play softball for the Lady Sun Chiefs.
“I chose Coastal Alabama because it feels like home.” Smith said. “I love the campus and the team.”
During her junior season, Smith was a power in the lineup, hitting .315 with 28 hits and 20 runs.
She led the Lady Arrows with 6 homeruns and was second in RBIs with 27.
“Kam is a strong player and good leader on the field,” Lady Arrow head coach Karla Beth White said. “She has the potential to hit the long ball at any time, and she’s reliable as a first baseman.”
She also had a presence in the pitcher’s circle earning 3 wins and 3 saves. Smith racked up 20 strikeouts and zero walks, only giving up a total of one hit and one run.
Smith said she is looking forward to playing at Coastal Alabama. “The coach is great,” she said.” I love her coaching style, and I believe she will help me reach the next level.”
Kam is a member of National Honor Society, FCA and and Anchor Club. She also volunteers with St. Joseph Hospice.
Kam is the daughter of Kathy and Daniel Smith.
