Lower Columbia College
Class of 2019

Kelly Smith coached the Red Devil baseball team for 18 seasons leading the team to five NWAACC Championships and seven runner-up finishes. He etched himself on the short list of the most successful coaches in the history of the conference as Smith’s LCC teams played in the NWAACC Championship game an incredible 12 times during his 18 seasons.

He came on the scene at LCC in 1995 and made an immediate impact as his first three teams came away with a championship. Coach Smith also was the first head coach to implement a no-excuse study table program that has been part of the entire LCC athletic program ever since. Smith turned Story Field into a northwest baseball showcase field.
