MEMPHIS, Tenn. – University of Memphis women’s soccer head coach Brooks Monagahan announced Tuesday that St. Matthew Catholic High School standout Miranda Smith has signed her National Letter of Intent to join the Lady Tigers for the 2014-15 campaign. Smith is the fourth signee in the 2014-15 class.

“Miranda is an extremely versatile player that we could play as an attacking center-mid, outside forward or an outside back. She has experience at all three of those positions,” Monaghan said. “She is a player that can come in and make an immediate impact at any one of those three positions. She is quick and a very technical player with a great work rate. Miranda is an all-around very good soccer player that will make this team better.”

A three-sport start at St. Matthew, Smith brings a wealth of playing experience. The Ottawa, Ontario native played attacking center-midfielder for the varsity soccer team and also shined in volleyball and touch football.

On the club level, Smith played for Capital United. She helped Capital United to the OYSL eastern division championship. Smith was a three-time Ontario National All-Star Team member, which won national gold and silver medals. She was a bronze medalist for the Ontario side at the Canada Games. She has been an Ontario Provincial player since she was 13 and member of the National Training Center since she was 15.

Miranda is the daughter of Craig and Catherin Smith.

Why did Miranda choose the University of Memphis?
“I feel like I will grow as a player and person in my time there and I loved the coaching staff.”

What does Miranda plan to major in at the University of Memphis?
“Psychology, but I am not 100 percent sure.”
