|Amy Buwalda (Team Worth Gold, Mt Juliet High School) signed a Letter of Intent with Motlow State last Thursday. Lady Bucks Head Coach Gary Barfield was obviously pleased with his ability to recruit her out from under Division I schools who were pursuing the power-hitting first baseman.
Amy has lead the Mt Juliet Lady Bears to two consecutive AAA State Championship Finals and was named to the All District 9AAA Team and 9AAA Tournament Team while compiling a .474 batting average. In addition to playing with Team Worth Gold, Amy also receives hitting instruction from Team Worth '93 head coach Jimmy Waggoner.
Motlow State finished 44-12 in 2007 and were ranked 17th in the country. Coach Barfield indicated that he expects Amy to be an impact player from day one, starting at first while occupying a spot in the heart of the lineup during her freshman season. Congratulations to Amy Buwalda.
