Monica (Maiden name: Glomb) Guercio
Monica started pitching at the age of 8 years old. Her first inning of t-ball she got line drived in the face on the pitchers mound. At that time, she knew she wanted to be a pitcher and strike everyone out, to protect her face.
She quickly rose to fame without the blink of an eye. All four years of high school, she started on varsity and lead the team to undefeated section champs and a WPIAL championship (the first ever for Mars Highschool Softball). Her coach was so excited about it, she named her daughter after the field they won on, Lilly Field.
Monica continued after receiving a full scholarship to a Division II school, Kutztown University. There, she appeared in 30 games and started in 29 as a senior. She finished the season with a 2.02 ERA. Glomb ended her career with 424 strikeouts, which is second on the KU career pitching records. Glomb was also a captain for the 2011 season. She helped KU to its ninth consecutive appearance to the NCAA Division II Atlantic Regional and win 40 or more games for its fifth straight season. She was given the honor of ALL-PSAC East First Team, as a senior
10 years after graduating, Monica was inducted into the Mars Highschool Sports Hall of Fame and the Butler Sports Hall of Fame. To this day, Monica holds records for strike outs, runs, and an all time low ERA.
She now enjoys teaching the younger generations pitching and most importantly, having fun! Monica throws fastball, 2 seam fastball, every change up invented, rise, drop, curve, and screw.
