He allowed 62 hits in 57.0 innings worked while striking out 33 batters. Zelko, who also was a Rawlings/ABCA Golden Gove recipient, was charge with just one error on the season.

Jenkins is a transfer from the Community College of Baltimore County where he was named the NJCAA Region XX All-Tournament team. An outstanding defensive player, Jenkins was the National NJCCA Golden Glove Catcher of the Year as well as the NJCAA Division II Northeast District Defensive Player of the Year.
