WAYNE, NJ - Wayne Valley High School baseball standout, Zach Kasperowicz was one of six local athletes who signed National Letters of Intent to continue their baseball careers at Felician University, Felician head coach Chris Langan announced. The commitments came during the first week of the 2019-20 NCAA signing period, which began on Nov. 13 and runs through next summer.
Felician is a member of NCAA Division II and competes in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference(CACC). In 2019, Langan's 16th year at Felician, the Golden Falcons (31-23, 24-8 CACC) won the CACC South Division regular-season championship, their fourth consecutive such league or division crown, and earned the program's fourth NCAA Tournament appearance.
"Our coaching staff assessed that in this year's class we needed to retool offensively and become more athletic," Langan said. "Led by our recruiting coordinator Dustin Javins and coaches Stephen Langan, Frank Collazo, Mike Atan and Jack Fowler, we strongly feel that we have accomplished those goals. These young men give us a more dynamic offense and the athleticism to keep us competitive in the CACC and regionally for years to come."
Zach Kasperowicz (Wayne, N.J./Wayne Valley) is a 5-foot-10, 190-pound catcher for Wayne Valley High – where he also plays soccer and basketball – and for PS2 Academy, based in Wayne.
He was a 2018 Big North Conference Honorable Mention All-Independence Division selection. Kasperowicz hopes to study business administration.
"Zach is a left-handed hitting catcher that is very polished behind the plate," Javins said. "He's a high-IQ guy that will make our pitching staff better."
Felician beings its 2020 season with a five-game neutral-site trip to Myrtle Beach, S.C. from Feb. 20-23.
