Andrew Bauer

Class of 1989

Andrew was inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame in 2006. His citation is copied below:

 

When Andy Bauer graduated from Washington College in 1989, only all-time scoring leader Nick Scallion had put more points on the scoreboard. Andy, who was his teammates’ choice as most valuable player in 1987-88 and 1988-89, finished off a brilliant four-year career on the hardwood of Cain Gymnasium with 1,372 points and 509 rebounds. Although he was a prolific scorer, he also excelled on defense and was an accomplished rebounder.

During Andy’s four years here, Washington won 67 games and lost only 28.

As a freshman, Andy was primarily the sixth man on a team that went 20-6. He scored 221 points. Washington earned a bid to the NCAA Division III tournament, losing to Susquehanna University in a regional playoff.

The following year, he scored 376 points on an 18-8 club that defeated Ursinus for the Middle Atlantic Conference divisional championship but lost to Franklin & Marshall for the overall conference crown.

As a junior, Andy scored 389 points. Washington finished 19-7, losing again to F&M for the Middle Atlantic Conference title.

With Andy as their captain, the Shoremen won 20 of 27 games in 1988-89. His contributions included 386 points. Washington returned to the NCAAs, but lost to F&M in the regional championship game.

Andy was the team MVP and a captain in 1987-88 and 1988-89. As a senior, he received the prestigious Athletic Council Award as the male athlete who had done the most for Washington College athletics.

Andy, who prepped at Mount St. Joseph in Baltimore, is currently a teacher and coach at his alma mater.

Washington College considers it an honor and privilege to induct Andrew Bauer into its Athletic Hall of Fame on this sixth day of October, 2006.
