Rancho Cotate Girls Lacrosse Coach Maddy Smith fell in love with coaching her sophomore year at Rancho while being coached by her father. Now six years later, Smith gets to coach her younger sister, Mackenzie, with her father on the sidelines as her assistant. The Smiths are a lacrosse loving family who get to share their love and knowledge with other talented athletes.
