GW splits with local teams

The GW baseball team’s offense continued its onslaught of opposing pitchers, but the Colonials only split their two games this week. GW (18-14) pounded Mount Saint Mary’s College after putting up strong offensive numbers in an extra-innings loss to Georgetown University. “That’s going to happen,” sophomore Dan Rouhier said. “We were playing pretty well and […]
