The Dallas Stars Elite Girls are proud to announce another commitment. Jayne Smothers has committed to play for McKendree University beginning this Fall. She recently commented, "Dallas Stars Elite has really made me a very confident and stronger hockey player even though I was only with them for three years. I learned a lot about friendships, teamwork, ups and downs playing with the Dallas Stars Elite. I will forever be thankful for the experience with DSE. I chose McKendree because it felt like home. All the girls were very close and welcomed me with open arms. I somewhat know the coach because he is friends with my 1 on 1 coach. I cannot wait to continue my hockey career at McKendree."
"Getting to coach Jaynee this year was a true test for us as she was a tournament player that lived in Kansas City. She did an incredible job each time she was with us and has an incredible natural scoring ability. McKendree is lucky to have her and I look forward to hearing about her and her college career in the future." - Coach Hesse
