Jackson, Tenn. - 12/2/2002 - Christina Smith, a former basketball standout for North Side High School will play for Union University next season. Smith, a 5-foot-11 forward, will transfer in from the University of Alabama-Birmingham.
Smith is a 2000 graduate of North Side High School where she was named to the All-State team. Led by Smith, the Lady Indians earned a spot in the state tournament in Murfreesboro, Tenn. Her senior year, Smith averaged 19 points and 11 rebounds per game.
Union’s head coach Mark Campbell states, “Christina is someone we recruited out of high school but things didn’t work out.” Campbell goes on to say, “We are still extremely excited to have her join us and fill the positions that will be lost when our two seniors graduate this year.”
Smith will join the Lady Bulldogs next fall as a sophomore. Union will loose only two seniors this year, Tashekia Brown of Bradford and Allison Harrison of Bartlett.
