Senior Pat Lehman was named the 2009 Atlantic 10 Pitcher of the Year Tuesday after leading the conference in three major statistical categories this past season and finishing second in two others.
The 6-foot-4 New Jersey native was tops in the A-10 in earned run average (2.40), strikeouts (89) and innings pitched (105) this past season and second in opponents’ batting average (.235) and wins (seven). All five of those marks were Lehman’s best of his GW career.
Lehman was also named to the all-conference first team, where he was joined by redshirt junior second baseman Sean Rockey, who led the Colonials in a multitude of hitting categories including batting average (.420), home runs (10), runs batted in (60), on-base percentage (.504) and slugging percentage (.679). His on-base percentage was best in the conference as well.
