I am so excited to officially announce that I'll be continuing my academic and athletic career at Smith College in Northampton Massachusetts. I am so incredibly grateful for the opportunity to continue playing the sport I love at the school of my dreams.
My first phone call with a college coach was Coach Lopez, so it really feels like I've come full circle. As soon as i stepped on campus for the first time, I knew that Smith was where I'd want to spend the next four years of my life. Coach Lopez has always been so encouraging and supportive throughout this entire process, so even though I'll be across the country I know it'll still feel like home.
Lastly, I cannot thank my parents, my coaches, and the Sting organization enough for their support and guidance. Go Pioneers! " - Riley Austin
