Sarah Signore was counted on for both her hitting and pitching during her two years at Millersville University.

Greencastle-Antrim alumnus Sarah Signore has been named a Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) all-star for her accomplishments on the softball field during her senior season at Millersville University.

Signore was selected by a vote of the coaches to the 2011 All-PSAC East Second Team as a designated/utility player. She pitched and played in right field for the Marauders and also served as a designated hitter.

This was the second year that Signore was Millersville’s double-threat. She transferred to MU from St. Bonaventure University as a junior. This season Signore started all 38 games as the leadoff batter for the Marauders, leading the team with 140 plate appearances. She was second on the team in hits with 47. From the circle, she led the pitching staff with 73 strikeouts.

Four of Signore’s teammates were also selected All-PSAC. The five selections were the most received by Millersville softball since the league was split into three divisions in 2009.

In her two years at Millersville, Signore moved into the Career Leaders and Single Season Leaders list in several categories. She has the second highest single season strikeout tally with 120 and is third on the career listing with 193 Ks. She is tied for ninth in most wins in a single season. In addition Signore has the fifth best winning percentage and the ninth best earned run average for a Marauder pitching career. Signore also made her mark on the career offense at Millersville. Her .336 batting average put her at 10th on the all-time career list at MU.

Signore has also been honored by the PSAC both years while at Millersville as a Scholar Athlete and as a junior was a PSAC honoree as Player of the Week and Pitcher of the Week. She graduated Cum Laude last month with a bachelors degree in Speech Communications.
