Senior Pitcher and Junior Third Baseman Named To Honorable Mention Team

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. -- Washington and Lee senior pitcher David Sigler (Strasburg, Pa./Lampeter-Strasburg) and junior third baseman Matt Kozora (Ellicott City, Md./Centennial) both earned Honorable Mention All-State honors in voting conducted by the Virginia Sports Information Director's Association (VaSID).

Sigler garnered the selection after going 6-2 on the mound with a 2.86 ERA. He started nine games for the Generals, hurling seven complete games and two shutouts. Sigler struck out 48 batters in 66 innings of work and held his opponents to a .268 batting average. He finished his career with nine W&L pitching records and an overall record of 21-15. Sigler is also second all-time on the career strikeout list (214) and holds the fourth-lowest ERA in school history (3.62). He is a two-time First Team All-ODAC selection.

Kozora was named to the team after batting .398 with 12 doubles and a team-high 28 RBI. His 43 hits were second on the team as were his 20 runs scored. Kozora will enter his senior season second in career hits (126) and fourth in career batting average (.359).

Averett College sophomore second baseman Armando Reyes was named the VaSID Player of the Year, while Christopher Newport's John Harvell was named the VaSID Coach of the Year.

Washington and Lee finished the 2001 season with a school-record 23 wins against just eight losses. The Generals narrowly missed out on a third-straight ODAC Tournament bid after finishing 9-7 in conference play.
