Inside the lines: Sierra Smith

Smith is one of two players that is 5 feet 2 inches tall on the team and has been playing volleyball since seventh grade. Smith attended Granbury High School where she played under Coach Tammy Clark and was a three-year letter winner. Smith was named district defensive MVP and earned a spot on the all-district team. She holds the school record for career digs and for the most digs in a season.

Texas State drops two in Golden Hurricane Classic

The ball club strung together 11–1 and 7–1 runs in the second set to erase the early 2–0 lead the Razorbacks held.
