Campus watch: Zebrowski starring for St. John Fisher

Adam Zebrowski has had a standout season with the St. John Fisher College baseball team, but the junior really put on a show last week. 

The junior from Albany, and a CBA graduate, was named Empire 8 Conference Player of the Week last Monday after leading the Cardinals to a 3-0 record the previous week. Zebrowski was 11-for-14 with two doubles, four home runs, 10 runs scored and 14 runs batted in. He had three hits in the team’s first two games and was 5-for-5 in a 20-3 nonleague victory over Keuka last Saturday. 

St. John Fisher beat Keuka 10-1 and 20-8 in Empire 8 Championship play, going 4-for-8 with a homer and six RBIs. The five home runs gave Zebrowski 17 on the season which leads Division III. On the season, he’s hitting .520 (66-for-127) with 11 doubles to go along with the homers, 56 runs scored and 59 runs batted in. The catcher has made just two errors (.991 fielding percentage) and has thrown out five of seven baserunners trying to steal. 

SJFC is 29-5 and is the No. 1 seed in the league tournament this weekend.
