LeMeita Smith continues to foster her talent in the middle. A blocker with good timing and long wingspan, she puts a stop to many attacks while swatting a quick attack of her own.
Freshman Season (2004)
Smith made 20 appearances her freshman year. Offensively, she produced five kills with one error in nine attempts for a .444 against Harvard early in the season. On two occasions, Smith tallied two digs, while her biggest blocking night came against Grambling State, when she stopped five attacks.
Smith, a multi-sport athlete at Sam Houston, played volleyball under Teresa Frederick. She lettered three years in high school, earning all-district recognition each season. She was named her school's "Blocker of the Year" as a junior and senior and "Defensive Player of the Year" her final campaign. The U.S. Marine Corps recognized her with the "Distinguished Athlete Award," while the U.S. Army Reserve gave her a nod as a "National Scholar Athlete," both in 2004. Smith also lettered three years in basketball and helped the track team to a district championship during her four-year letterwinning tenure.
Born on June 21, 1986, LeMeita Courtney Smith is the daughter of Joann and Le Smith. A TCU pre-major, Smith has three siblings: Toni, Rochell, and Aaliyah.
