“It’s a breath of fresh air,” said Guthrie. “I’m just ready to graduate and get up there.”
Guthrie, who came to Edgewood by way of Holtville, signed a Naitonal Letter of Intent to play collegiate softball at Southern Union State Community College in February.
“They contacted me,” said Guthrie. “The verbal to CACC fell through. I went up (to Southern Union) and hit before one of their games. I took some soft-toss and that was all he wanted to see.”
Guthrie has plenty of pop in her bat. Despite battling injuries as a junior, she led Edgewood with a .438 average and eight home runs (38 RBIs).
“He told me that if I continue to have a strong bat and keept improving on my hitting, he’ll find me a place in the field,” said Guthrie, of Lady Bisons’ coach Brian Pittman. “He said he loves the idea of me catching and seeing me behind the plate.”
