Guy will join Iowa softball program

Like father, like daughter.

Avery Guy confirmed Friday that she has accepted an offer to continue her college softball career at the University of Iowa, beginning with the 2020 season after she plays another year at DMACC.

Willie Guy, her father, played football at Iowa from 1992 through 1995 under Hall of Fame coach Hayden Fry.

Avery Guy said she likes the idea of extending her family's tradition with the Hawkeyes and following her father to Iowa City.

"I'm really excited," she said. "He's been one of my biggest supporters. It's really been a goal of mine."

Guy was an all-state shortstop at Cedar Rapids Jefferson. She hit .362 with two homers and 33 RBIs as a freshman this past season at DMACC, which finished third at the NJCAA Division II World Series with a 48-2 record.
