CRESSON—A pair of Mount Aloysius baseball players earned conference weekly honors.
Lucas Szymanski (Ford City, PA/Ford City HS) was named the AMCC Player of the Week. He helped the #6 seeded Mounties to advance in AMCC tournament play, upsetting #3 seed Pitt-Greensburg in three games. The junior third baseman crossed the plate 5 times while going 5 for 11 (.455) against Pitt-Greensburg.
Szymanski led Mount Aloysius to a 5-2 week overall, batting .429 (12-28) with 4 doubles, 2 HR, 7 RBI and a .786 slugging percentage. He also was a perfect 6-6 in stolen base attempts.
Stephen Hickey (Wayne, PA/Conestoga HS) was named the AMCC Pitcher of the Week. After registering 3 saves in non-conference play for the week, Hickey got the start in the elimination game of the first round of the AMCC tournament.
The fifth-year senior only allowed 3 hits while striking out 2 in 5.1 innings of work to get credit for the upset win over Pitt-Greensburg.
