She transferred to Aurora for her senior season and helped lead the Lady Houn' Dawgs to a district title. Above, in the front row with Smith, from left, are: Smith's parents, Barb and Steve Smith.

Jessica has been fun to watch, is a talented player and a natural leader on the floor. She would modestly and unselfishly tell you that there were better players, yet she was usually the best player on the court. Although always underrated, opposing players and fans will remember her as well. I hope to see her play more in college
