Megan Smith, a Batavia High School senior, is a two-sport Southern Buckeye Conference National Division (SBC-N) all-star. She has plans to continue both her educational and athletic careers at Northern Kentucky University.
The daughter of Jeff and Angie Smith was an all-conference performer on the soccer field and the basketball court having earned four letters on the turf and two letters on the hardwood. In soccer she also earned the Bulldogs’ most valuable player award.
In what little bit of spare time she has had outside her prep athletic career she’s somehow managed to find the time to also be a member of the student council.
“I like Northern Kentucky because its close to home and yet far enough away and I like their team and their coach,” said Smith who plans to major in nursing.
"Northern Kentucky is a perfect for her," said Megan's dad. "The school has a good nursing program and a good soccer program...Her mom is a nurse."
The soccer team leader is very proud of her teammates and their team that won its fourth consecutive SBC-N championship during the fall of 2006.
"I'm really proud of what we did this year in soccer. We were a district finalist and we won the SBC championship all my four years of high school...I'm very grateful to my dad and mom. He has coached me since I was little and he and mom were always there for me...I have a lot of respect for (former Batavia High School head girls soccer coach) Kenny Lowe."
Terry Sheehan, Batavia High School athletic director, praised Megan, saying, "Megan is a very dedicated and talented athlete."
