Southview ace Eve Sexstella-Alberti led Saints to 20-3 record – Morning Journal

Fourth in a series profiling the Lorain Sports Hall of Fame class of 2022. A May 14 banquet honoring the class is at German’s Villa in Vermilion.

Depending on whom you ask, Southview’s Eve Marie Sexstella-Alberti may be regarded as the best softball player in the history of the Saints’ softball program.

She was a multi-sport athlete in volleyball and basketball. But, she was at her best in softball as their ace pitcher and hitter at the plate.

Sexstella-Alberti, a four-year letterman, threw for Southview every day in her senior season, and was a key reason why they went 20-3 in 1997. Their lone losses were to Elyria.

She was also a talented volleyball player, earning all-county honors.

Sextella-Alberti went to West Virginia to play for Fairmont State University. There, she became the only softball player to be inducted to the Fairmont Hall of Fame. She was a four-time first-team All-West Virginia selection.

After college, she returned to the city of Lorain to give back to the community. Sexstella-Alberti coached softball and volleyball at Clearview.

For about two decades, the proud Saint teaches in the Clearview Local Schools system as an elementary school teacher.
