Zwier & Barclay Land on First Team, D'Ostilio is Honorable Mention; Barclay Also Named All-Sportsmanship
LANCASTER, Pa. — Three Washington College baseball student-athletes have been named All-Centennial Conference in a vote conducted by the conference's 10 head coaches. Senior third baseman Aaron Barclay (Crofton, Md./Archbishop Spalding) and junior catcher Ryan Zwier (Newark, Del./Christ School [N.C.]) were named to the first team, while senior second baseman Luke D'Ostilio (Hamden, Conn./Hamden) was tabbed as an honorable mention.
Barclay, who was named to the All-Centennial Conference second team in 2016, hit .349 and was the only Shoreman to start all 40 games this season. He led the team in doubles (11), finished second on the team in RBI (38), hits (51), and home runs (five), finished third in runs (33), walks (18), and slugging (.527), and tied for third on the team in stolen bases (seven). Through the end of the Centennial Conference Tournament, he is tied for ninth in the conference in doubles, tied for 10th in the conference in home runs, and is 10th in the conference in RBI. He is the first Washington College third baseman to earn first-team honors since Travis Beauchamp '99 in 1999.
Barclay was also the Shoremen's representative on the Centennial Conference All-Sportsmanship Team for the first time in his career. Each Centennial Conference member institution was permitted to nominate one student-athlete who exemplifies the best in sportsmanship for the All-Sportsmanship Team.
Zwier, a first-time All-Centennial selection, tied the single-season school record for home runs with eight and also led the team in hits (53), triples (five), RBI (40), walks (21), and slugging (.671). He was second on the team in on-base percentage (.469) and runs (38), tied for second in doubles (nine), and was third in batting average (.371). He started and played in 39 of the Shoremen's 40 games. Through the end of the Centennial Conference Tournament, he is second in the conference in triples, fifth in the conference in slugging, sixth in the conference in on-base percentage, tied for sixth in the conference in home runs, and tied for seventh in the conference in RBI. Zwier is the second Washington College catcher to ever earn All-Centennial Conference first team honors, joining Brian Rush '96 in 1995.
D'Ostilio, who was a first-team selection last season, hit .290 with 25 runs scored, 25 RBI, eight doubles, two triples, and three home runs this season while making 33 starts in 34 games played.
