Merideth Marsh is a true point guard. People who watch her play say that she's a "coach on the floor" and cite her unselfishness. Marsh herself talks about her passion for the game.
"I'm very passionate about how I play," Marsh told VandyMania on
Monday, "so sometimes you could say that I'm a little aggressive."
Last spring Marsh led her team to two historic firsts. In February,
Christian Academy won Kentucky's All "A" Classic, a statewide basketball
tournament for all the schools with an enrollment of 425 students or
less, and Marsh was named the tournament MVP.
Then in March, CAL won the Region 7 tournament to earn one of the
highly coveted spots in the Sweet 16 of Kentucky's single class state
tournament for the first time in the school's history.
For most high school girls looking forward to collegiate basketball,
their future college plans begin to take shape the summer following their
junior year, and Marsh was no exception.
The turning point in her college quest came during Vanderbilt's Team
Challenge Camp held on the Vanderbilt campus during June.
Before that time, Marsh had exchanged letters with the staff during her
junior year. "But I actually didn't know how interested they were in
me, and I didn't know how interested I was in them," Marsh said.
But when her team from CAL came to Nashville to participate in the
camp, Marsh had the opportunity to see the campus first hand and to sit
down and talk with the coaches about the program and their goals.
She liked what she saw and what she heard during that weekend. "I felt
at home. They welcomed me with open arms and I felt like I would be
myself there," said Marsh.
Marsh is the third commitment to this year's recruiting class, joining
Jessica Mooney, a 5'9 guard from Hillboro High School in Nashville, and
Lauren Lueders, a 5'8 guard from Jackson, Missouri.
