Grace is also a member of the OCIAA Division III champion Lady Gladiator golf team. She is on the honor roll and is a member of the Leo Club.
Freshman Erin Smith has jumped into a starting position with the Lady Gladiators as a shooting guard. She is a feisty defender and is quick with great ball handling skills on the offensive side of the ball. Her best game was also against NFA when she had 10 points.
Erin has been playing basketball since 1st grade. She plays year round for an AAU team called Middletown’s Finest. Erin was also on the honor roll in the first marking period.
