Katie Smith Quotes
General Comments
“It’s an exciting day, a little overwhelming. I feel a little honored and little humbled because when I first started playing I had no idea that this is what would happen throughout the years. It’s fun to have this done in front of the fans who have watched me grow up as a player and a person.”

Reaction to the unfurling of her No. 30 jersey
“It’s pretty wild when you hear that no one else will wear No. 30. It is really an overwhelming feeling because you see (Jerry) Lucas up there and you how many great players men and women came through this university and to be recognized with some of those is definitely, truly an honor.”

On the significance of the honor
“This is right up there. The Olympic Gold Medal probably tops it all but this is definitely right there at the top. This is really a huge honor and something that I’m really excited about.”
