At the plate, Sieber owned a .194 batting average but hit .500 over the last four games of the regular season. All four hits came against  Marist College including two singles and a double in the nightcap versus the Red Foxes. She her hit only home run of the season in her second game, a solo shot against Georgetown.

2015: Sieber started three games this season, all coming against non-conference foes (Hampton, Central Connecticut, Stony Brook). The infielder earned four of her eight at-bats in those starts, including a season-high two at-bats against Stony Brook. Her first game as a Stag came against Monmouth on March 7 when she went to the batter’s box twice. She was hit by a pitch in that game which led to her only run scored of the season. She picked up a base hit when she came off the bench to single in her one at-bat that game. She struck out only one time in her 10 plate appearances
