ANNVILLE — Lebanon Valley College inducted five new members into its Athletic Hall of Fame recently, and also recognized the 1952-53 men’s basketball team as its Team of Honor.
Dr. Amy L. Zellers-Shrader, a Harrisburg resident and native of Lewisburg, is one of LVC softball’s all-time greats in the circle as an all-Commonwealth Conference pitcher between 1997 and 2000. At the time of her graduation, she held the program records for career ERA (1.72), wins (33), appearances (76), innings pitched (436.2), and strikeouts (424); she still remains ranked in the top four in each of those categories. In 1998, she led NCAA Division III in saves and is LVC’s career leader with seven. At the plate, Zellers-Shrader was a career .313 hitter with a .432 slugging percentage. She was a two-time all-CC selection, including a first-team pick after a senior season that saw her slug a MAC-best five home runs.
The purpose of the Lebanon Valley College Athletic Hall of Fame is to recognize those individuals who, through participation, support, or interest have made outstanding contributions to Lebanon Valley College athletics. These individuals have helped bring recognition, honor, distinction, and excellence to Lebanon Valley College and its intercollegiate athletics program. Inductees must have graduated at least 10 years earlier to be eligible for election.
