June 17, 2010

At its recent awards banquet, the Fayette County Sports Hall of Fame recognized Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus student athletes Sam Beucher and Bethany Novotny as 2009-10 Scholar-Athletes.

“I am very thankful for this award because there were so many other great scholar-athletes nominated," said Beucher, a junior on the men’s baseball team.

Novotny, a 2010 Penn State Fayette graduate and member of the women’s softball and basketball teams, also is appreciative of the honor.

“As a senior, it is nice to get this award since I am leaving. It is a great way to go out," she said.

Vince Capozzi, Penn State Fayette’s athletic director, nominated the pair based on excellence on the field for their sport, demonstration of leadership on the team, and previously being named to an all-academic team.

The award ceremony was held on Saturday, June 26, at Penn State Fayette’s Community Center.
