Heading to Graceland: Fayette’s Kenzie Smentkowski signs softball Letter of Intent with Yellowjackets
Kenzie Smentkowski’s signing wasn’t your typical college student-athlete signing.

On its way to play Central Methodist University across town, the entire Graceland softball team stopped by Fayette High School and watched Smentkowski sign her Letter of Intent, becoming the newest member of the Yellowjackets.
