At its upcoming awards banquet, the Fayette County Sports Hall of Fame will recognize Penn State Fayette, The Eberly CampusStudent Athletes student athletes Sam Beucher and Bethany Novotny as 2009-2010 Scholar-Athletes. Beucher, a junior on the men’s baseball team says, “I am very thankful for this award because there were so many other great scholar-athletes nominated.” Novotny, a 2010 Penn State Fayette graduate and member of the women’s softball and basketball teams, also is appreciative of the honor. She explains, “As a senior, it is nice to get this award since I am leaving. It is a great way to go out.” 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 will be held Saturday, June 26, at 6 p.m. at Penn State Fayette’s Community Center. (Photo by Susan Brimo-Cox.)
