Senior Standout: Capital's Brittany Smith

Posted: Updated:

Capital pitcher Brittany Smith loves two things about playing for the Bruins: getting wins, and giving head coach Mike Miller a hard time.

"It's one of my favorite things to do," said Smith. "We kind of have that relationship where we can be funny with each other, and super sarcastic. We're always roasting each other on different things. We have a good relationship."

"She's pretty much able, from her experience in our program, to balance some of that," said Miller. "She knows when it's time to crack a joke or lighten up a little bit, but she also knows when it's time to turn it on."

Smith's on field antics have been well documented. Last season her and her teammates inspired an entire piece on their photobombing. It's something Smith is very proud of.

"Getting our own story on photo bombing is just the definition of Capital High softball," said Smith. "It's just all around a great group of girls, and it's always fun."

"We know the other person isn't going to get mad with it," said Saints senior short stop McKenzie Johnston. "Just since we've been young we've been doing stuff to each other knowing the other person won't get mad."

Smith's attitude makes her fun to be around, but her play makes her fun to watch. She plays so well in fact, that she's already signed to play softball next year with her hometown Carroll Saints.

"I'm just lucky I'm able to continue my softball career for another four years," said Smith. "And that's what I've been working for since the tee-ball days."

"She's a competitive girl that plays hard all the time regardless if she's pitching or at another position," said Miller. "So I think they recruited her a lot for her ability, but a lot for her attitude and effort."

It's clear that attitude and effort are big parts of Brittany Smith's game, but we'll see if she brings her photobombing, and prankster side along with her to the Carroll Saints next year.
