W&L LANDS TWO ON ALL-ODAC BASEBALL SQUAD

SALEM, Va. -- The Old Dominion Athletic Conference released its postseason baseball honors on Thursday. Washington and Lee was honored with the placement of Michael Hanson (Atlanta, Ga./Pace) and Bobby Littlehale (Villa Park, Ill./Willowbrook) on the second team.

Hanson, a freshman second-baseman for the Generals, finished the season with a .328 batting average and team-highs in both home-runs (5) and stolen-bases (10). Hanson was also one of W&L's top pitchers this past season. For the year, he accumulated a record of 7-3 on the mound, boasting a team-best ERA of 3.63.

Littlehale was the starting leftfielder for the Generals throughout most of the 2000 campaign. As a freshman this season, Littlehale led W&L in doubles (10) and RBI's (27), while ranking second on the team in both batting average (.350) and hits (43). Over the course of the regular-season, Littlehale hit at a torrid .404 clip against ODAC competition.

Washington and Lee finished its' year with a record of 20-15 overall. The Generals finished the regular season at 9-7 in the ODAC, good enough for the fourth seed in last weekend's ODAC Tournament.
