Cheryl Smith
Lipscomb Athletics Hall of Fame
The records portion of Lipscomb's women's basketball media guide is testament to the impact Cheryl Smith had on the program during its NAIA era. During the 1989-90 season, which marked the Lady Bisons' first trip to the NAIA National Tournament, she set single-season records for most points (816), most field goals made (332), most field goals attempted (566), most free throws attempted (233) and most fouls (130). She was also named third team NAIA All-American for 1989-90. During her career from 1987-1992 she became the second all-time scoring leader (2,429) and the third all-time leading rebounder (1,006). She has been a member of the Lady Bisons ocaching staff since 2000. Cheryl Smith's impact on the growth of the women's basketball program will always be remembered.
