The new Iowa Women's Softball League has added another talented player from the Quad Cities.
Morgan Smith, a former team captain and all-conference catcher at Davenport North, has become the third player from the Quad Cities and the 27th overall to join the league.
Smith is currently a freshman at Southeastern Community College in West Burlington. She joins DoniRay Mayhew of Bettendorf and Lexi Ferrari of Rock Island Alleman as members of the Quad Cities connection. Mayhew and Ferrari are both at Kirkwood.
Smith was the starting catcher at Davenport North for five straight years, beginning as an eighth grader in 2012. She hit .379, .358 and .364 during her last three years in high school and also was a two-time selection to all-academic teams.
The Iowa Women's Softball League has been created by the Metro Sports Report to give college players an opportunity to play in a competitive summer league. It's the only program of its kind in Iowa and is gaining enrollment on a daily basis.
The league is open to anyone who is currently playing college softball in Iowa, as well as all Iowans who are competing at out-of-state schools.
