WASHINGTON - Incoming George Washington baseball freshmen Robbie Metz (Poolesville, Md.) and Kevin Hodgson (Waldorf, Md.) were each named to the Washington Post Spring All-Met team on Friday, June 13.

Metz is a First Team selection as a pitcher out of Poolesville High School while Hodgson was named Honorable Mention as a pitcher out of North Point High School.

A two-way threat, Metz finished a dominant senior season batting .462 as Poolesville's starting shortstop while also posting a 7-0 record, 0.15 ERA and 70 strikeouts as a pitcher. The 10th-ranked player and top shortstop in the state of Maryland according to Perfect Game, Metz was named an MSABC Maryland All-State player for the second straight season.

Hodgson was named All-District by the State of Maryland after his senior season at North Point High School. He helped the Eagles to a 14-8 overall record and an appearance in the Maryland 4A East Region Championship game. In the title game, Hodgson was magnificent on the mound, with 13 strikeouts over eight shutout innings before North Point bowed out in extra innings.

It marks the second straight season that head coach Gregg Ritchie has signed two All-Met players following the selection of Bobby Campbell and Joey Bartosic last season.

Campbell and Bartosic each shined in their freshman seasons at GW. Both were named to the Atlantic 10 All-Rookie squad at the conclusion of the season.

Metz and Hodgson are part of a recruiting class of 11 student-athletes that will join the Colonials in 2015.
