Sito named Horizon League Softball Player of the Year

For the second time in two seasons, Elyria’s Tess Sito, a Cleveland State sophomore, has been named the Horizon League Softball Player of the Year. Sito was also named to the all-league first team.

Sito also was voted player of the year in 2010, making her only the second person in conference history to be earn the honor as a freshman and sophomore.
Sito is the sixth player in conference history to earn multiple player of the year awards and the fifth to earn the distinction in consecutive seasons.

"The more we play, the more it is apparent that Tess is quite simply the best all-around athlete in the league," CSU head coach Angie Nicholson, also an Elyria native, said. "To be chosen as the player of the year again shows the respect that the league has for her."

Sito has made 44 appearances, which include 36 starts. She leads the Horizon League in strikeouts (293), wins (24) and innings pitched (272 2/3). One of the Vikings’ top offensive threats, she’s the Vikings’ leader in hits (58), doubles (11), stolen bases (18) and runs scored (30) and has the second best batting average (.369) in the league. In 75 at-bats against league opponents, she has only struck out five times, posting an OPS of 1.023.
