Foggo, Massenzio and Zachry Play Final Home Games

Seniors Shaun Foggo (Hyattsville, Md./DeMatha High), Frank Massenzio (Gillette, N.J./Watchung Hills) and Drew Zachry (Cheverly, Md./Eleanor Roosevelt) will play their final home games April 29 against Shenandoah University. Here's a look at each of the three:

Foggo, a reserve outfielder, has started three games this season. He has three hits, two runs, one RBI and is 1-for-1 on the basepaths. His best game this year was a 2-for-4 performance with an RBI against Gallaudet. He has demonstrated a tremendous amount of senior leadership and has greatly contributed to the positive chemistry of the team. Foggo is a "B" student majoring in history.

Massenzio, a starting catcher, was named second-team All-CAC in 2000. He posted career-best numbers in batting average (.277), hits (28), RBIs (19), runs (15) and doubles (9). He hit his first career home run with a three-run blast against Greensboro. As a freshman in 1997, he produced the game-winning RBI in a 4-2 victory against Division I Georgetown. He has a 3.4 grade-point average and is majoring in history.

Zachry, a pitcher, right fielder and designated hitter, was named first-team All-CAC for a third time in 2000. He is enjoying perhaps the finest offensive season in school history, having already set new school standards for hits (61), RBIs (49) and runs (46). He enters today's game hitting .452 with a slugging percentage of .741, both on pace as school season highs. His power numbers include 11 doubles, six home runs and five triples.

Zachry, who was named CAC Player of the Week last week, has 196 career hits. He had his finest season on the mound as a freshman when he went 3-1 with a 2.28 ERA and was named CAC Rookie of the Year. He originally set the school season hits record in 1998 when his 54 hits eclipsed the 52 by New York Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman 10 years earlier.

A physics major with a 3.2 GPA, Zachry has been nominated for Academic All-American consideration. He will receive the school's Harris Cup next month in recognition of his outstanding academic, athletic and leadership credentials.
