libero & ds

Hello, my name is Anna Smith from Charleston, SC. I am a libero and defensive specialist that is NOT in need of a scholarship to pursue my dream to play at a Division I tournament level program. I attend Oceanside Collegiate Academy (class of ’23) where I began my high school journey as a varsity player my freshman year and play club for Carolina Rogue.  I plan to pursue a degree around content creation with the goal of becoming a sport photojournalist.  This web site was created to make it easy to keep you apprised of updates.

accolades

Here are the accolades from my youth career thus far:

“ALMOST 50% OF OUR SCHEUDLE ARE AGAINST NATIONALLY RANKED TEAMS! CAROLINA ROGUE IS THE ONLY CLUB IN SC COMPETING AT THIS LEVEL.”

CAROLINA ROGUE

What I love about Rogue is the culture of intense training and accountability with players of all ages including former players who are now playing at some of the best programs in the country!  South Carolina’s only nationally ranked club in season 2019 that has placed players in the BIG10, PAC12, SEC, ACC and others.  Players have gone on to play at Kentucky, Indiana, Utah, Virginia, University of South Carolina, Clemson, Furman and others.  The club has produced several All-Americans.

“WHAT I LOVE ABOUT OCEANSIDE IS I WILL HAVE BEEN IN A COLLEGIATE ACADEMIC ENVIRONEMENT FOUR YEARS AHEAD OF REPORTING TO COLLEGE.”

OCEANSIDE COLLEGIATE ACADEMY

Oceanside Collegiate Academy believes in building a culture of excellence both in the classroom and in athletics. Our school schedule allows me the opportunity to develop my skills in sport while still pursuing classes at the collegiate level.  I have played in three straight state finals winning the 2021 title my junior year while being named All-Region.

“I BELIEVE OFF THE COURT EXPERIENCES ARE ESSENTIAL TO DRIVE YOUR PASSION FOR THE GAME YOU LOVE.  THE NCAA FINAL FOUR IS JUST ONE WAY I DO THAT.”

EXPERIENCES

I am fortunate to be able to participate in amazing volleyball and sport experiences to enhance my overall life experience which enhances love for the game and my performance on the court.  I often watch/attend top college matches/events, participate in select sport performance analysis/ training and frequently travel with my club and family around the country.

“PUTTING TIME IN OFF THE COURT IS IMPORTANT AND I HAVE BEEN LUCKY TO HAVE ACCESS TO SUCH GREAT SOLUTIONS LIKE P3 WHO WORK WITH THE BEST ATHLETES IN THE WORLD EVERY DAY.”
