College Sports Madness Atlantic 10 Preseason All-Conference Teams

Senior pitcher Kenny O'Brien and junior utility player Owen Beightol have each been named to the College Sports Madness Atlantic 10 Preseason All-Conference Second Team.

O'Brien, an Atlantic 10 Academic All-Conference selection last season, led the Colonials and ranked fourth in the A-10 with a 2.76 earned run average. He also led the team with five wins, 52 strikeouts and six saves in 58.2 innings of relief work. A southpaw from
Yonkers, N.Y., O'Brien retired 21 batters on a called third strike.

Beightol led the Colonials in batting average (.309), slugging percentage (.459), runs (30), home runs (5) and multiple-hit games (16) while finishing second in total bases during a strong sophomore campaign. The
Richmond, Va., native hit safely in 17 of his final 19 games and appeared in 52 games with 49 starts. He also had three hitting streaks of at least seven games.

The George Washington baseball team will begin outdoor practice at the full-renovated
Barcroft Park on Friday, January 25. The Colonials open the 2013 season, and the first season under new head coach Gregg Ritchie ('86), on February 15 at Davidson.
