Aurora senior catcher Aleese Angelo signed a National Letter of Intent Wednesday to continue her academic and softball careers at Millersville University, a Division II school in Pennsylvania.
Angelo was the Suburban League American Conference Player of the Year after hitting .655 with a .674 on base percentage. She also had 55 hits, 15 doubles, three home runs, three triples, 43 RBIs and 30 runs scored. Angelo also did not strike out in 89 plate appearances and had a 1.012 slugging percentage and a 1.686 on base slugging percentage.
Angelo was just as stellar defensively. Opposing teams tried to steal against her just eight times in 24 games. Angelo gunned down four of those baserunners.
For her career, Angelo has a .557 batting average with 111 hits, 28 doubles, nine triples, four home runs, 89 RBIs and 63 runs scored. She plans to major in meteorology.
"What’s most impressive is her love and commitment to her family off the field," Greenmen head coach Sam Petrash said. "She gives back to the Aurora community softball programs by volunteering her time to the youth.
"The kids feed off her energy and absolutely love her. She is a huge reason the softball numbers are building back in our youth programs. She is a very unique and special person."
