"The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be." ―Ralph Waldo Emerson
"It feels like a dream come true to join the SMWC team because all I ever dreamed of was playing basketball in college. The number one thing I like about college is that you have access to the gym at any time. Also, I like how beautiful it is. The one thing I'm most excited about is going to SMWC and continuing my basketball journey, meeting new people & getting my degree. The coaches were very wonderful, cooperative & helpful. I would like to thank everyone who supported me on my journey. My friend's family and coaches. Especially my coaches. If it weren't for them I probably wouldn't be committing to SMWC. They stuck by my side and pushed me to be hard and I now know why. Coach Fox, Coach Larkin's, Coach Lauck & Candice, you all left a great coaching impact on my life & everything you all taught me I'll never forget."
Quote | Head Coach Robert Belf
