Full College Sports Madness Atlantic 10 Preseason All-Conference Teams
George Washington senior Carlee Gray and junior Megan Linn have landed on College Sports Madness Atlantic 10 Preseason All-Conference Teams, the website announced on Monday.
Gray was picked to the Preseason All-Conference First Team as an infielder after a stellar 2015 season that saw the Colonials' first baseman post a team-best and career-high .369 batting average along with a .995 fielding percentage. The Elk Grove, California, native enters the 2016 season with the program's record for career putouts (942) while ranking third with a .990 career fielding percentage. Last season, Gray landed on the Atlantic 10 Academic All-Conference team and College Sports Madness' All-Conference Second Team.
Linn was chosen to the Preseason All-Conference Second Team as a utility player after posting a ,333 average as GW's second baseman in 2015. The native of Carona, California, led the team with 26 steals and ranks third on GW's all-time list with 56 career swipes after just two seasons. The leadoff hitter also led the Colonials in hits (52), runs scored (41) and doubles (13) as a sophomore.
The Colonials open the 2016 season on Feb. 12, against Austin Peay at a Gardner-Webb hosted tournament in Boiling Springs, North Carolina.
