CHESTERTOWN — In voting by the Centennial Conference's 10 head baseball coaches, Washington senior third baseman Aaron Barclay and junior catcher Ryan Zwier and senior second baseman Luke D'Ostilio earned all-star recognition.

Barclay (Crofton, Archbishop Spalding) and Zwier (Newark, Del.) landed on the elite first team, while D'Ostilio (Hamden, Conn.) received honorable mention.

Barclay also represented Washington on the conference's All-Sportsmanship team.

He is the first Washington third baseman to earn first team honors since Travis Beauchamp in 1999. 

Barclay, who batted .349, was the only player to start all 40 games for 28-12 Washington. He led the team in doubles (11); was second in RBI (38), hits (51) and home runs (five); and was third in runs (33), walks (18) and slugging (.527); and tied for third in stolen bases (seven).

Zwier, who started 39 games, 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 in on-base percentage (.469) and runs (38); tied for second in doubles (nine); and was third in batting average (.371). 

Zwier is only the second Washington catcher to earn a spot on the All-Centennial first team, joining Brian Rush '96 in 1995.

D'Ostilio hit .290 with 25 runs scored, 25 RBI, eight doubles, two triples and three home runs. He appeared in 34 games, with 33 starts.
