“Our kids were happy to come to practice every day and worked very hard to improve,” said coach Alan Swain. “They also took care of their business in the classroom and were a great team for the coach. Chase Smith is a phenomenal student-athlete who plays his best when the chips are low and you need him to take over the game. This is a special quality that cannot be trained. He was great for us on the football field and is our short stop or central field player in baseball this spring. I’m very happy to see what he does in high school. “
