Sophomore utility player Noah Levin earned GW’s first All-American nod from Collegiate Baseball Wednesday, according to a release.
He became the eighth player in program history and the first since 2004 to take the honor during his freshman season. Levin joined senior shortstop Nate Fassnacht as the Colonials’ two All-Americans for the 2019 season, marking the first time the program has had two All-Americans since 2002.
Levin was selected as one of seven freshmen second basemen. He and VCU sophomore right-handed pitcher Even Chenier were the only Atlantic 10 players chosen to receive the honor, the release states.
Levin excelled in conference play for the Colonials, garnering a team-topping .354 batting average. He also ranked in the top five on the team in hits (23), runs batted in (16), slugging percentage (.462) and on-base percentage (.442) in conference play.
Defensively, Levin anchored the infield playing at second base for the Colonials. He garnered a .925 fielding percentage on 168 catches. He played in 45 games for the squad this season and started 44 games.
His standout freshman campaign earned him the A-10 Co-Rookie of the Year Award and a spot on the A-10 All-Rookie Team.
