The Campus Recreation Player of the Week for March 4th is Danielle Smith. Smith was chosen as the Player of the Week due to her outstanding play for Snipe Chirp Cele in the Co-Rec broomball tournament this semester.

Smith has helped her team go unbeaten thus far in the tournament, and they are one of only two teams left who have yet to lose again in the spring.

Smith, a Junior Business Administration Major from Fulton, New York plays both broomball and floor hockey for intramural sports. She uses her experience from playing on the club hockey team to her advantage while playing both sports. "I know how to stay up on the ice, stick handle, and lift the ball better," said Smith.

Playing for Snipe Chirp Cele, Smith was able to net three goals to secure a hat trick in her team's 6-0 win over Sticks up the Pass on February 19th.  Smith plays with the same team for both broomball and floor hockey, and she says that that experience has helped them get to this point in their season. "Playing in both together definitely helps. We have good team chemistry."

In her team's last game, Snipe Chirp Cele was able to stay unbeaten in a dramatic 1-0 overtime win over Craach Sweepers. "It's pretty intense and nerve-wracking. I've never won the overall before," added Smith.

Smith says that playing intramural sports for her has been a positive experience at Oswego. "It's helped me because I've met new people and it's a good way to bring everybody together and take the stress off of doing homework and everything."

In addition to playing intramurals and playing on the women's club ice hockey team, Smith also works at disability services, likes to go to the men's hockey games, and hangout with her friends.

Snipe Chirp Cele will look to stay undefeated when they face off with Back Dat Pass Up on March 3rd.
