ERIE, Pa. – Penn State Behrend junior pitcher Thomas Zbezinski (Gibsonia, PA/Pine-Richland) and senior infielder Josh Wagner (South Park, PA/South Park) were named Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) Athletes of the Week for helping the Lions capture their fifth AMCC Championship last week.
