Sito notches Player of the Year award in freshman season

Elyria's Tess Sito had an amazing freshman season playing softball at Cleveland State University.

Sito was honored for her outstanding season this week as the Horizon League's Player of the Year. It is the first time a freshman has received the accolade in 13 years.

Sito was also named the league's newcomer of the year, along with a All-Horizon League First Team selection and a member of the league's All-Newcomers team.

Sito finished the season with 18 home runs, a school best, along with other school records. She broke the single-season marks for hits (67) and runs scored (37). She is also second in school history in stolen bases, walks and RBIs.

Sito finished among the Top 20 players nationally in four categories and among the Top 30 in two others.
Keystone's Jessica Burt was named an All-Horizon Second Team selection.

CSU head coach Angie Nicholson also nabbed Horizon League's Coach of the Year award for their record-setting 44-15 overall record.
