MCMINNVILLE, Tenn. -- Madison Smartt, a senior at Warren County High School (Tenn.) has committed to attend Covenant College. By accepting the enrollment offer, Smartt intends to become a full-time student and play soccer for the women's soccer team under head coach Mark Duble in the fall of 2013.
As a member of the varsity soccer team at Warren County, Smartt was recognized as an All-District player her senior season. During every season as a Pioneer, Smartt was nominated by her team as the recipient of the Hustle Award. Smartt also played club soccer for Upper Cumberland United for several years.
As a student at Warren County, Smartt is a member of the National Honor Society. When Smartt becomes a full-time student at Covenant in the fall, she hopes to continue to be very involved in campus activities and student life. When asked what most excites her about attending Covenant, Smartt replied, "I am really looking forward to living in a Christian community where all the students are there to grow in Christ and learn more about what they are called to pursue after college." Smartt is thinking of majoring in pre-med as she aspires to become a missionary doctor. She may also pursue a minor in piano.
Duble believes that Smartt will bring "great pace to our attack up front. Her desire to work hard and move into positions that give her good scoring opportunities in our attacking end will be very valuable to us. She is a great fit for the team and for Covenant and we look forward to having her here in the fall."
Duble, along with the rest of the Covenant women's soccer coaching staff and team, are pleased to have Madison Smartt join the Lady Scots for the 2013 season.
