Two Shine as Frostburg Stretches Past Washington College
The 17th ranked, 28-10 Frostburg State baseball team finished with a nail biting 1-0 win over Washington College on Tuesday, May 3rd.
Throughout this hard fought game, both teams registered four hits. Luckily, with the help of senior leader Anderson Burgess striking out 13 batters over 7 innings, he limited any push for Washington College to try and win the game.
Junior Devin Bell lead the team with two hits and a walk, with support from senior Jamaal Windom and junior Cody Harman.
Senior Teron Tyre lifted a high pop up far into left field that permitted Bell to score the game satisfying run.
Following the Bobcats’ only run in the ninth, Washington College was not going to quit as they loaded the bases with only one out.
The Bobcats still fought hard and smart as they finished out the inning by tagging a runner out at home along with senior Nick Huff striking out the games last batter, to pull out the victory.
Due to rain in the forecast, the game scheduled for May 5th at Washington & Jefferson was cancelled. The game will be rescheduled at a later date expected to have sunshine and blue skies.
Finally, the Frostburg State family wants to congratulate two outstanding student athletes that have not only been representing their team well but have been representing the entire school in a respectable manner. The College Sports Information Directors of American (CoSIDA) announced its 2016 Academic All-District baseball teams on Thursday and Frostburg State senior Zach Keeler was named to the NCAA Division III District 2 team for the second-consecutive year.
Keeler, a 2015 Second Team CoSIDA Academic All-American, boasts a perfect 4.0 in the classroom while majoring in both business administration and economics. He is the only student-athlete with a perfect 4.0 on the District 2 team and is one of four students with a perfect GPA among the eight All-District teams honored by CoSIDA.
Also, the Bobcats junior outfielder Devin Bell gathered his second weekly honor as the ECAC named him the Division III South Player of the Week.
He was selected as the CAC Player of the Week just before he hit three home runs and brought in several RBI’s and helped Frostburg sweep Mount Aloysuis.
Frostburg State will encourage the men’s team as they challenge Pitt-Greensburg, May 7th on FSU’s senior day.
