Baseball: Bulldogs' Lambke commits to GW

Stone Bridge senior Taylor Lambke committed to play baseball for George Washington University Tuesday. The 6-2, 205-pound, pitchers/third baseman will lead the Bulldogs' starting rotation this spring. He has a career ERA of 3.00.

Lambke chose the Colonials over other schools due to the combination of coaching staff, world class education, and proximity to his home in Virginia.

“I am extremely excited about this opportunity," he said. "I knew GW was a great educational institution and a great Division 1 baseball program and once I was able to spend time with Coach Mrowka and Coach Brown, I knew immediately I wanted to play there. I am signing as a pitcher, but I will have the opportunity to potentially play some third base as well. That was a big factor in my decision.”

Lambke spent the summer pitching and playing third base and outfield for the Mid-Atlantic Mets and in the fall played for the Mid-Atlantic Red Sox. He is currently playing tight end and trying to help the Stone Bridge football team make another run for the AAA state championship.

“It is nice to put this decision behind me so I can focus on finishing the football season strong before we start preparing for baseball in the spring,” Lambke said.

“Taylor has worked very hard on and off the baseball field to put himself in a position to receive a baseball scholarship offer from George Washington University," Stone Bridge baseball coach Sam Plank said. "George Washington University is not only getting a great baseball player but an outstanding young man as well.”

The Bulldogs went 17-6 in 2009, falling to Chantilly in the first round of the AAA Northern Region playoffs. They lost the vast majority of that team, including the entire starting rotation.
