Two All-Conference Selections for Baseball

TOWSON, Md. - Susquehanna catcher Zach Leone (Pelham, N.Y./Fordham Prep/University of Massachusetts) and third baseman Bryan Palsi (Brielle, N.J./Manasquan) both earned All-Landmark Conference recognition.

Leone was a First-Team selection while Palsi was named to the Second Team. Palsi was also a Second-Team honoree last spring.

Leone, a sophomore transfer, led the team in multiple offensive categories, including batting average (.402), hits (47), doubles (10), RBI (29) and slugging percentage (.556). He started all 32 games in which he played, primarily at catcher, and boasted a .977 fielding percentage.

Among all Landmark players, his batting average is currently third best, while his slugging percentage leads the conference.

Palsi, meanwhile, finished the season batting .286 with 28 hits, three doubles and three home runs. The junior drove in 26 runs - second best on the team and tied for 10th in the conference - scored 22 runs and started all 32 games in which he played. He committed just seven errors all season, playing primarily third base.

The Crusaders finished the 2015 season with an 18-17 record, including a 10-11 mark in Landmark Conference games.
