Smith joins Sylvia Queener, Jenelle Fortunato and most valuable player Racquel Prager in making the ranks of the All-Tournament line up.
Coach tucker was told Spartanburg Herald-Journal that "We've had some other local kids who played on the team and made some contributions. Morgan is the first to make the lineup." Tucker went on to add that "It just shows that if you have a good work ethic, you're quick and athletic, you can pick it up and succeed in this game."
The article went on to state that Smith, now a senior didn't even start playing lacrosse until she was in 9th grade and her rapid rise in the lacrosse world was all the more remarkable since she didn't come from the Northeast where youngsters traditionally grow up with the game. Smith got her taste of lacrosse when her high school started a team.
