Grant Wooten and John Thomas each registered a pair of hits as George Washington earned a 9-1 win over Wyoming East on Monday in a baseball game played at Beckley's Epling Stadium.
It was the Patriots' season opener.
Wooten limited the Warriors to just four hits and struck out four in a complete-game effort.
WVC HONORS: West Virginia State's Kelsey Lorraine was named the West Virginia Conference softball pitcher of the week while Concord's Becca Gleason was tabbed for player of the week honors.
Lorraine guided the Yellow Jackets to a 4-1 week. She worked 13 innings and struck out 21 batters, allowing just three runs. For good measure, she smacked a game-winning three-run homer in a victory over Edinboro.
Gleason led the Mountain Lions to a 6-2 record at the National College Softball Invitational at North Myrtle Beach, S.C., going 12 for 25 with 11 runs scored, four RBIs and four stolen bases.
Groves paced the Mountain Lions to a perfect 5-0 week, registering a .571 batting average with nine RBIs, nine runs and two stolen bases.
