She had at least one hit and one RBI in five of the six games. She struck out only once in 23 at bats. Her best games of the week came against Fort Hays State. She was 7-for-9 with a run, five RBI, a double and a home run against the Tigers. The Gorillas were up only one, 3-2, in extra innings at Hays, when Guthier stepped to the plate and hit a grand slam to help secure the Gorilla win. She also had a 4-for-5 performance in the second game against Nebraska-Kearney with six RBI, three runs scored, a double and a home run. The 5-7 sophomore third baseman is a native of Platte County, Mo. where she competed at Platte County High School.
