“She really was hitting her spots and moved the ball around a lot.”
McGurk will attend the University of Toledo to continue her college career.
McGurk said the following on her NCSA personal statement:
I like having trust with coaches, teammates, and teachers. I trust my teammates when I am pitching and they trust me to pitch well.
