"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.
