2014 Atlantic 10 All-Conference Teams | @GWBaseball1
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - George Washington baseball freshmen Bobby Campbell and Joey Bartosic were each named to the Atlantic 10 All-Rookie Team, and seniors Owen Beightol and Colin Milon were named to the conference's All-Academic Team the league office announced on Tuesday afternoon.
Campbell and Bartosic each started at least half of George Washington's 50 games this season, as the Colonials were one of just two teams in the nation to start seven freshmen in the field in at least half of their 2014 games.
Campbell started all 50 games at third base in his debut season. The Olney, Maryland, native finished fourth on the team with a .272 batting average, including seven doubles, 20 RBIs and six stolen bases. He tallied 14 multiple-hit games and four multi-RBI contests and was named the Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week on March 17.
Bartosic appeared in 46 games with 38 starts in the outfield and closed his debut season on a 14-game hit streak, tied for the third-longest streak in the Atlantic 10 this season. The Oakton, Virginia, native batted .298 with 46 base hits. He also finished 20-of-25 in stolen base attempts on the season, tied for third-most in the conference.
As of May 20, Bartosic leads the Atlantic 10 and is tied for fifth in Division I with eight outfield assists on the season.
Beightol and Milon each garner the first Atlantic 10 postseason accolades of their careers after earning their degrees in a Special Commencement Ceremony last week.
Beightol concludes his career among GW's all-time top five for games played (213, T-2nd) and at-bats (797, 3rd) while ranking ninth with 234 career hits. This season he posted career-high marks in batting average (.337), runs (31), hits (65), doubles (14), slugging percentage (.440) and on-base percentage (.380). He earned his bachelor's degree in marketing.
Milon had a career year in his final season, posting a 2.94 ERA with two victories in 21 appearances. He totaled 23 strikeouts on the season against just five walks and concludes his career tied for fourth in program history with 81 appearances and tied for 13th with six saves. Milon earned his bachelor's degree in political science and served as the student speaker at the Special Commencement Ceremony.
