PETER DEAN HONORED AS ACADEMIC ALL-AMERICAN
LEXINGTON, Va. -- Junior pitcher Peter Dean (Vienna, Va./James
Madison) was placed on the Second Team Verizon Academic All-America College
Division Baseball squad which was announced on Tuesday.
Dean, who is a pre-med major, currently carries a cumulative
3.61 grade-point average.
Dean went 8-2 on the mound this season for W&L. His
eight wins were a team-best total, as were his ERA (1.67), strikeouts
(73) and innings pitched (80.2). A First Team All-Old Dominion Conference
and All-South Region selection, Dean is currently W&L's all-time leader
in ERA (2.14) and his 20-5 record leaves him just three wins shy of tying
the all-time program mark.
The Generals were 28-8 this season and finished as the runner-up
in the ODAC Tournament.
Dean is W&L's 32nd GTE/Verizon Academic All-America
selection and the second this season. Senior football player John Melillo
(Forney, Texas/Belle Plaine) earned first team honors this fall.
The Verizon Academic All-America College Division is comprised
of all NCAA-member schools from Divisions II and III.
