Abby (Ruff) Smith shone on the diamond while at Waubonsee. As a freshman in 2002, Smith was selected All-Skyway First Team and All-Region Second Team as she captured the team’s “triple crown,” leading the Chiefs in batting average, runs batted in and home runs.

In her sophomore year, Smith elevated all aspects of her game, leading the league in nearly every offensive category as the conference’s Most Valuable Player.

She went on to play at the University of Iowa where she earned the Gold Glove Award, along with Big Ten Conference All-Academic honors and the team’s Hawkeye Heart Spirit Award.

She currently works as a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer at Mercy Medical of North Iowa in Mason City.
