High School Senior Athlete of of the Week: Michaela Smith
Michaela has been a four year varsity starter on the Norman North Fastpitch softball team where she leads the team behind the plate as their catcher.
While at North she has received many awards including All-district, NN utility player of the year and defensive player of the year.
She loves playing ball, but she is also a stellar student. She is ranked 1st in her class of almost 500.
She plays competitive ball for the Oklahoma Ultimate Gold 18U but knows that no matter how busy her schedule is she has to keep Jesus first. She attends Bethel Baptist Church and is an active member of her youth group there.
She particularly loves Bethel’s Acteens program, because they get to go visit the homebound and do special projects like making care packages for soldiers. Michaela is a leader on and off the field, and that’s why I believe she is deserving of this award.
