GW Baseball's Justin Albright Named Atlantic 10 Player of the Week
Senior Batted .667 to Lead Colonials to 3-1 Week
April 22, 2013
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - George Washington baseball senior Justin Albright has been named the Atlantic 10 Player of the Week, the league office announced on Monday.
It marks the first career conference award for Albright and the first time a GW player has garnered the honor since Owen Beightol on March 19, 2012.
Albright hit at a torrid pace to lead the Colonials to a 3-1 week. The Thurmond, Md., batted .667 (12-of-18) with five doubles, four runs, four RBIs and was 5-for-6 in steal attempts. He also slugged .944 and did not strike out in 18 at-bats.
He opened his week by going 5-for-5 with three doubles and two RBIs, including the game-winning RBI in the bottom of the 10th inning, on Wednesday against Towson. Albright also started the game on the mound and pitched 4.1 innings with four strikeouts in a no decision.
Albright went on to record multiple hits in GW's weekend series at Fordham. On Friday, he went 3-for-5 with one double and one RBI before going 2-for-4 in both Saturday's and Sunday's contests.
GW will play mid-week games - at home against UMES (Tues., 3:00 p.m.) and at UMBC (Weds., 6:00 p.m.) - before hosting James Madison in a non-conference doubleheader on Saturday at Barcroft Park.
