WASHINGTON - The George Washington baseball team will conclude its regular-season schedule with a three-game series at St. Bonaventure beginning on Thursday afternoon at 12 p.m. at Fred Handler Park.
GW enter the series one game behind seventh-place Fordham for the final spot in the tournament. Based on a number of scenarios, the Colonials could clinch their second consecutive trip to the Atlantic 10 Championship, May 21-24 in St. Louis, Missouri.
GW has won four games in a row dating back to the series finale at VCU on May 4. Last weekend, the Colonials used a pair of walk-off victories followed by a 7-3 win on Sunday to sweep Rhode Island.
Senior Owen Beightol enters the final weekend of the regular season approaching top-five career rankings in games played (210 entering weekend) and at-bats (783). He also currently ranks 10th in program history with 230 career hits.
Beightol leads GW and ranks 13th in the Atlantic 10 with a .341 batting average. He is also sixth in the conference with 61 hits this season while pacing the Colonials in runs (28), doubles (13) and walks (13).
Seniors Aaron Weisberg and Colin Milon are also working their way up the all-time lists in career pitching categories. Weisberg enters the final weekend of the regular season with 43 games started as a pitcher (5th all-time), 65 appearances (10th) and 12 victories (T-21st) while Milon currently ranks fifth all-time with 80 appearances and tied for 13th in program history with six saves.
Junior Ryan Xepoleas is enjoying a fine debut season with the Colonials, ranking second on the team with a .335 batting average and leading the team with 25 RBIs. He has totaled 60 hits on the season, including 11 doubles, three triples and two home runs while ranking second on the team with eight stolen bases.
GW remains one of two programs in Division I to start at least seven freshmen in half of its 2014 games. The septet includes Bobby Campbell (47 games started), Kevin Mahala (47), Eli Kashi (35), Joey Bartosic (35), Colin Gibbons-Fly (34), Cody Bryant (30) and Andrew Selby (27) and makes the Colonials one of the youngest teams in the nation.
