Henry Smith knows that somewhere, his grandfather Ernest is proud.
“The first day I was hired, I went to his house and was able to tell him first,” Smith said. “He was so excited and so honored that I would work at his school. He was a die-hard Cowboy.”
Smith, whose sisters were also CVHS softball pitchers, also can be proud of his daughter Taya, who is continuing the family softball tradition as a first team all-section pitcher and infielder for the Cowboys.
Smith committed two errors at second base all season and, when on the mound, consistently averaged at least eight strikeouts per game, throwing four one-hit games, including a complete game home win over Williams High School in a March 29 doubleheader that was perfect until the final out of the game in the fifth inning.
