Five Shoremen Baseball Players Qualify for Centennial Academic Honor Roll, DiFabbio Named All-Sportsmanship

LANCASTER, PA -- Five members of the Washington College baseball team have earned spots on the Centennial Conference Academic Honor Roll for spring sports and junior first baseman and outfielder Lucas DiFabbio (Guilford, CT/Guilford) has been named to the Centennial Conference All-Sportsmanship Team.

To be named to the Centennial Conference Academic Honor Roll, a student-athlete must be a sophomore, junior or senior; a starter or key reserve on his or her team; and carry at least a 3.40 cumulative grade-point average. A key reserve is defined as a reserve who appeared in at least 50% (for position players) of his team's contests and/or played in the Centennial Conference Tournament.

Each Centennial Conference member institution was permitted to nominate one student from each spring program who exemplifies the best in sportsmanship for the All-Sportsmanship Team. Nominations were submitted by the athletic departments or head coaches.

Senior first baseman Tyler Cotterell (Lincroft, NJ/Middletown South) earned a spot on the Honor Roll for the third consecutive year. Junior pitcher Ben Cameron (Laurel, MD/Reservoir) and junior outfielder Pat Kinsella (Guilford, CT/Guilford) each earned the distinction for the second year in a row. Junior shortstop/second baseman Nick Marinelli (Ellicott City, MD/Marriotts Ridge) and sophomore infielder Michael Festa (Newtown, PA/Council Rock North) each landed on the honor roll for the first time. 

DiFabbio is a first-time member of the All-Sportsmanship Team.

Cotterell will graduate from Washington College this Sunday with a degree in History. Cameron and Marinelli are both Business Management and Economics double majors. Kinsella is majoring in Psychology, while Festa and DiFabbio are majoring in Economics.
