WASHINGTON – George Washington softball coach Stacey Schramm announced on Tuesday that Carlee Gray (1B, 6’0”), Morgan Matetic (C/U, 5’3”), Maura Murphy (I/U, 5’8”), Meghan Rico (P, 5’7”) and Laura Thompson (P/U, 5’8”) have signed National Letters of Intent to play for the Colonials during the 2012-13 school year.
“We are very excited to welcome these five players to the GW softball family,” Schramm said. “This group brings a wealth of talent to the field, as well as great character off the field, and I know the players will represent this University well. We expect this class to have an immediate impact on our program.”

“Carlee is an athletic first baseman with great potential,” said Schramm. “She is a terrific defender and will have a big impact on our infield. On the offensive end, Carlee has a lot of power and consistently reaches base at a high rate.”
“Morgan is a complete hitter and is capable of batting for both average and power,” Schramm said. “She can play multiple positions and will help deepen our line up with her ability to fill different offensive roles.”
“Maura is a consistent and dependable player,” said Schramm. “Offensively, she has the ability to drive the ball to gaps in the field. On defense she is very steady and her ability to play multiple positions is extremely valuable.”

“Meghan has been a dominant pitcher at every level,” Schramm said. “She hits the strike zone with pure velocity and spin and she consistently works ahead in the count.”
Thompson, a four-time all-county selection from
“Laura is a strong player who will make an immediate offensive impact in the circle,” said Schramm. “She is a great competitor and she locates her pitches well. She also has a nice ability to drive in runs.”
The GW softball team opens the 2012 season at the Coastal Carolina Invitational on Friday, Feb. 10.
Make no mistake, Sarah Costlow still gets butterflies in her stomach every time she steps in the circle to pitch.
