29 wins against just seven losses and a school-record 2.20 ERA. He also
set new W&L records for career strikeouts (232), career appearances
(54) and innings pitched (290.2).
Washington and Lee finished the 2004 season with a 21-16
overall record and a runner-up finish in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference

was the 36th in school history and the second this season. Senior women's
