KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Oregon Tech head coach Greg Stewart announced recently that Mt. Hood All-American pitcher Ann-Marie Guischer (The Dalles, Ore.) will join the Oregon Tech roster for the 2015 season.  Guischer is currently in her second season at MHCC and will transfer in to Tech as a junior.

As a freshman at MHCC, Guischer was just one of two pitchers named First-Team NWAACC All-American in 2013.  Guischer was named the Southern Region Pitcher of the Year for the Saints, finishing last season with a 12-5 mark in the circle, while striking out 151 batters in 101 innings and coming away with a 1.46 ERA. 

Prior to her collegiate career, in three seasons at The Dalles-Wahtonka High School, Guischer led her teams to three semifinal appearances in the 5A State Championships, while earning second-team all-conference honors her sophomore and junior seasons.  As a senior Guischer was named first-team all-conference, Columbia River Conference Pitcher of the Year and capped her prep career after being named to the 5A First-Team All-State squad. 

“Ann-Marie is a very good pitcher that will be a great addition to our team in 2015.” Stewart said.  “She has already been successful against good lineups at the college-level and could be one of the top pitcher’s in the Cascade Conference.”

Ann-Marie is the daughter of Mike and Kris Guischer and plans on pursuing a major in Radiology at Oregon Tech next fall.
