September 12 - Georgetown University issued a release this afternoon to welcome its 10-player freshman recruiting class, a group that two Northern Virginia natives in pitchers Carter Bosch and Jack Weeks.
Bosch, a right-hander from Potomac School and member of our NOVA Nine Team in 2017, is coming off an impressive summer with the Alexandria Aces of the Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League that saw him go 3-1 and finish second in the league with a 1.32 ERA in 34 innings. Over his final two seasons with the Panthers, Bosch went 9-3 with a 1.24 ERA and 137 strikeouts to just 32 walks in 90 innings.
The left-handed Weeks, meanwhile, set a program record for appearances at Paul VI Catholic, compiling 11 victories during his career a the Fairfax school and compiling a 1.00 ERA and 52 strikeouts in 42 innings this past spring.
Both players helped their teams earn berths in the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association (VISAA) Division I state tournament in each of the past three seasons.
“We are very excited about this class,” Georgetown coach Pete Wilk said in the school’s release. “We feel that we have added a very talented class that has not only the on-field ability, but the character to its mark on Georgetown baseball for a long time.”
The Hoyas, who went 25-30 overall and 8-9 in the Big East last season under Wilk, return three area players - all sophomores - in catcher Ryan Davis (Oakton), right-hander Owen Lamon (Oakton) and infielder Yareb Martinez (Champe).
