Butler Community College’s Karly Girty – Athlete Spotlight Presented By Butler Community College

By Matt Browning

It late in the recruiting period and despite the time constraints of the period, Butler volleyball player Karly Girty felt like her recruitment was simple.

“Coach Lechtenberg and Cosby were very clear in their expectations of me,” Girty said. “I appreciated their efforts to make sure I was a good fit for the program.”

From that recruiting moment until now, GIrty has loved everything about her experience as a Grizzly.

“I’ve had a fantastic experience with the professors and classes at Butler,” Girty said. “In each of my classes, the teachers have made an effort to get to know me on a personal level and made sure that I understood the material. Additionally, Butler provides many helpful resources such as tutor labs where students can get help from professors and students in any class they need.”

While she has been at Butler for less than a year, Girty has already made experiences that she will remember forever.

“A few that stick out to me are spending time with my teammates, making a podcast for my psychology class, and having dinner at Coach Lechtenberg’s house,” Girty said.

There is no doubt in Girty’s mind that she made the right choice by going to Butler. She said she would encourage any prospective student or student-athlete to attend Butler based off her experiences alone.

“I have yet to have a bad experience with a faculty member at BCC,” Girty said. “If you are someone who wants to work in a positive atmosphere where you are seen and encouraged to grow, Butler is the place for you.”
