WASHINGTON, DC - George Washington sophomore Sean Rockey (Sammamish, WA/Eastlake/Columbia Basin CC) was named the Atlantic 10 Conference Baseball Rookie of the Week, the league announced on Monday.
Rockey, a transfer from Columbia Basin Community College (WA), finished the weekend 5-for-13 (.385) with two doubles, six runs scored and five RBI.
