Not much could be done, when it comes to Kaplan softball, without the efforts of senior 2nd baseman Meryl Guidry.
Guidry says she knows it’s her team.
” I feel like it’s my responsibility because I have to get the team going. Pick them up when they are not doing so well. set the tempo for the team,” Guidry explains.
Setting the tempo is something she’s been doing ever since she stepped out onto the lady pirates field.
And while this season has started slow, this team is looking forward to the final four games of the season, and the postseason… where Kaplan is known to shine, and Meryl will shine to, or as she says “try to.”
She says, “I try to lead by example…not sure I’m the best at it. I show them what they need to do, rather than tell them.” says Guidry.
Head coach Shay Harpin adds: ” She gets out there and plays hard, and knows the game… I think that is her biggest contribution to us.”
