Meryl McGuire will assist the SFA coaching staff in 2004 after wrapping up her two year career at the university last spring. McGuire came to SFA in 2002 following two years at Cosumnes River College of the Bay Valley Conference in California. She was voted the Offensive MVP of her team in 2001 and continued that as a junior at SFA.
In her first season with the 'Jacks, McGuire led the team in batting average and total bases and proved to be a team leader for Poulsen as she began the process of rebuilding the SFA program.
The Elverta, California native started 112 games in her two-year career at SFA, filling several roles. A solid hitter, McGuire also proved to be a versatile defensive player seeing time at shortstop and in the outfield. She will assist the SFA coaching staff in all phases of the game.
