PETER DEAN EARNS ACADEMIC ALL-DISTRICT LAURELS

LEXINGTON, Va. -- Junior pitcher Peter Dean (Vienna, Va./James Madison) was named to the 2003 Verizon Academic All-District College Division Baseball team which was announced on Thursday. He was a first team honoree.

A pre-med major, Dean carries a 3.61 cumulative grade-point average.

This season Dean posted an 8-2 mark on the mound for the Generals. He led the team in wins (8), ERA (1.67), strikeouts (73) and innings pitched (80.2). A First Team All-Old Dominion Conference 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 won a school-record 28 games (against just eight losses) this season and finished as the runner-up in the ODAC Tournament.

The Verizon Academic All-District team includes players from small colleges in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida.

Dean moves onto the national ballot and could earn Verizon Academic All-America honors.
