It was an exciting day for Girard High School senior Shelby Smith.

Smith signed her letter of intent on Tuesday to play softball for the Pittsburg State Gorillas.

“It’s a relief just getting the pressure off my shoulders not having to worry about being pressured picking a school so late in the year,” Smith says.

In her time at Girard HS, Smith earned All-CNC honors as a pitcher, and helped the Trojans win their first ever state championship last season. Next year, she will join a Gorilla team that will have a first year head coach in Ashley Balazs.

“I’ve only met her a couple of times, but she seems really cool,” Smith adds, “I’m excited to go play for her and the program.”
