Where Are They Now: Megan Rhodes

Who is she? Megan Rhodes Smith, a former ace pitcher for the Tennessee Lady Vols.

What is she known for?  By the time her playing career was done, Megan had etched her name firmly into the Lady Vol record books. She presently stands in the top five in team history in the following categories: Strikeouts; Wins; Innings Pitched; and ERA (an excellent 1.77). She also led the Lady Vols to three WCWS appearances during her years at the school.

Recognize anybody in that pic? From L-R, that's Tonya Callahan
Mallinson; Monica Abbott; Shannon Doepking; and Megan

You might not know... that even back during her playing days, Megan's career objective was to become a coach!

What's she up to now?  Last off-season, Megan was hired as the pitching coach for the Lipscomb Bisons and head coach Kristin Ryman.

Contact information: You can follow Megan on her personal Twitter account @MRhodesSmith, and the team @LipscombSB. They have gotten off to an undefeated 4-0 start this year, and will take the field again tomorrow against Iowa & Drake, before playing Missouri, Baylor, and UAB the rest of the weekend.
