Leslie Smith was named the Lobos' assistant swim coach on Aug. 3, 2005 by head coach Tracy Ljone. Smith, a four-year letter winner in swimming at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington, also spent two years as a graduate assistant at Duquesne University.

At Duquesne, a member of the Atlantic 10 Conference, Smith worked with the men's and women's swim teams while pursuing her master's degree in Liberal Studies.

A native of Taylorsville, N.C., Smith graduated from UNC-Wilmington with a bachelor's degree in Communication Studies and a minor in German. She received the Student Athlete Leadership Award and was the vice president of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee. Smith was also a four-time Carolina Athletic Association Scholar Athlete and Seahawk Academic Award recipient.

"Leslie has really developed as a coach this past year," said head coach Tracy Ljone. "I have seen so much growth in her this year and it is fun to watch. I delegated a lot of responsibilities to her this year and she has handled each and every one. She is completely in charge of our recruiting and has done an amazing job which is evident in the sheer number and talent of recruits."
