WASHINGTON, DC - Steve Mrowka, The George Washington University head baseball coach, recently announced that Josh Wilkie, a former RHP for the GW baseball team, has been presented with the Warren H. Fulton III Memorial Award.
The Fulton Memorial Award is given annually to the Colonial baseball player who best exemplifies the spirit, teamwork and sportsmanship demonstrated by the late Warren Fulton. Fulton played baseball for GW from 1986-1988.
Wilkie, a native of Alpharetta, GA, finished his career at GW (2003-2006) with a 25-12 record and a 2.97 earned run average. His 25 victories were good for third all-time at GW and his 291 career strikeouts ranked second. Following his senior season, Wilkie signed a free-agent contract with the Washington Nationals and played Rookie Ball for the Gulf Coast Nationals (Viera, FL) of the Gulf Coast League's Eastern Division last year.
In related news, former RHP Justin Prinstein has signed a free-agent contract to play baseball for the Hoboken Pioneers of the First Division in Belgium. Prinstein transferred to George Washington from Albion College in 2005 and made a total of 16 appearances for the Buff and Blue during his two years as a Colonial.
The GW baseball team begins its 2007 season February 13, when they travel to Georgetown to take on the Hoyas. The Colonails will host George Mason on March 7 in their home opener.
