About me: Fourth-year varsity starter was an All-Monroe County first-team pick last spring after being second-team as a freshman and sophomore … She plans to major in physical therapy and play softball at Houghton College … In addition to pitching, she plays third base and shortstop … Sile is a member of National Honor Society and Hilton’s Varsity Athlete Leadership Club … She throws six pitches: fastball, changeup, curveball, rise, drop and screwball … She used to swim and play soccer but gave that up to focus on softball … Coach Amy Centola also calls her a terrific team captain who shares the knowledge she has gained from specialized pitching and hitting instruction with teammates.
