Dahlonega, GA - North Georgia College & State
University's Casey Smith has been named the Peach Belt Conference
Defensive Player of the Week after leading the Lady Saints to their
second straight victory Saturday afternoon.
Smith keyed a defense that had a dominating performance against USC Aiken, holding the Lady Pacers to just two shots on goal. USCA did not get off a shot in the first half only one of their second-half attempts was on goal.
Smith also played a part on offense, providing two assists as North Georgia won the game 3-0. The shutout was the fourth of the year for the Lady Saints. This is the second PBC weekly award Smith has received after being named the Offensive Player of the Week last month.
North Georgia returns to action Wednesday evening, traveling to Anderson University to take on the Trojans at 7:00 p.m.
