Saint Vincent softball infielder and pitcher Alona Sleith is expected to have a big sophomore season. But it isn’t just her coaches, teammates and Presidents’ Athletic Conference opponents who have the ready-made expectations.

Sleith, a Yough graduate, was named Monday to the Schutt Sports and National Fastpitch Coaches Association National Player of the Year Watch List.

That means Sleith is considered one of the top 50 players in the country in Division III softball. Only 10 other sophomores made the list.

Sleith last season was an All-Central Region and All-PAC first-team selection after she hit .416 with 11 home runs, 38 RBIs and 31 runs scored. She was 6-4 as a pitcher and led the Bearcats with 29 strikeouts in 62 2/3 innings.

She led the conference in average and RBIs.

The Bearcats open the season March 3 at the NTC Tournament in Clermont, Fla. against Adrian College.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
