She is a versatile, all-around student athlete, who is just coming into her own. She is also one of the few remaining members of Palmyra’s 2018-19 Class AAAAA district championship team.
Those two facts make Zoe Smith a great foundation upon which to rebuild on.
This week, Smith continued to help foster and nurture a young Cougars’ girls’ basketball team. The sophomore guard was instrumental in Palmyra going 2-1 over the period.
On Saturday at Cedar Crest, Smith tallied 15 crucial points in the Cougars’ dramatic 38-35 road triumph. Smith recorded five two-pointers, a three-pointer and knocked down two of three free throw attempts.
She also performed admirably on Friday, scoring nine points during a 32-28 home loss to Hershey. On Monday, Smith and the Cougars defeated Red Land 29-26.
If Palmyra and Smith continue to improve, they figure to have a realistic chance of qualifying for this season’s District Three postseason.
