Smith Signs to Play Softball at Hanover College
Recently Charlestown Lady Pirate Softball Senior Mackenzie Smith gathered with family, friends and coaches to sign a letter of intent to play softball and attend Hanover College next school year. During the past two seasons, Mackenzie has maintained a .505 batting average, logged 55 hits, 16 RBI’s and 47 runs for Charlestown Lady Pirate Softball. Seated in the photo with Mackenzie are Assistant Coach Jeff Webster, her parents Lady Pirate Head Coach John Smith and Marci Smith, and Charlestown HS Athletic Director Chad Gilbert. Mackenzie was also joined by three of her travel play coaches, standing from left to right Paige Dickey (holding Emery Lieberman), Dennie Jenkins, and Chelsea Jordan. Mackenzie plans to major in accounting at Hanover and was attracted to the college because of its location, being close to home and its size. When asked for advice for others wanting to play sports in college, Mackenzie commented the “putting in the work goes a long way and having confidence along the way, and not letting adversity get in the way. Congratulations to Mackenzie Smith and best of luck at Softball at the next level.
