The 5-foot-7 senior set a state record in the 800-meter run at the Class 5A state meet this past season, leading the Braves to the team title. Smith’s 800 time of 2:09.07 shattered the state record by two seconds and, at the time of her selection ranked No. 43 nationally among prep girls competitors in 2022. Smith, whose sister Sammy won the Gatorade girls track award last year, is a three-time All-State soccer player for the Braves. At the state track meet this spring, she also ran the anchor leg on Boise’s winning 4x400-meter and 4x800-meter relay quartets, and she took second in the 200-meter dash.
A National Merit Scholar, Smith has maintained a weighted 4.38 GPA in the classroom. She has signed a National Letter of Intent to play soccer on scholarship at Stanford University this fall.
A national champion Nordic skier, Smith, along with her siblings, founded (and remains a board member) of the non-profit GO BIG INC., which provides resources and opportunities for underprivileged youths. She serves as an intern for Voice in Sports, an organization that empowers female athletes through advocacy and mentorship, and she has volunteered locally as part of multiple community service initiatives through her school’s National Honor Society.
