Girls Varsity Softball · NHS Softball Senior Spotlight: Layla Smith #9


Layla Smith #9

Our third senior is Layla Smith. Layla is a third-year varsity player that spent most of her time on the left side of the infield. Layla has added her consistent and strong bat to Northmont’s offense. 

Layla is described by her teammates as supportive, hardworking, sweet, goofy, and positive. One of her teammates added that “Layla shows so much perseverance. She has been in and out of games because of injuries and still comes in when she needs to and does her job. She is also so good at whatever she does.” Another teammate said, “I love her personality and how hard she works for the things she wants. She is the sweetest person, and I can’t wait to see what life has in store for her.” 

Her coaches love her as well. Coach Mangen admires her drive and perseverance and said, “Layla has overcome injury and worked hard to come out on top. She is very motivated and determined.”

After graduation, Layla plans to attend Ohio Northern University and major in Nursing. 

Layla’s dedication to our program is greatly appreciated. We will miss her work ethic and positive attitude, and we cannot wait to cheer Layla on in the future.
