Silvia Panizzutti of Knightstown High School is the KWG Productions Henry County High School Athlete of the Week.
Panizzutti is a senior foreign-exchange student at KHS.
Silvia is from Italy and has little to no experience playing softball. However, after a successful season and a Lady Panther on the basketball team, she continued to join her friends on the diamond.
In the preseason scrimmage, Panizzutti was one of a few players that helped kickstart the Panthers hitting against Blackford.
She continues to progress daily and the coaching staff is excited to see how the team progresses this season.
