Severn School baseball standout to join Mountain Hawks next year
Joe KotlerSevern School senior baseball player Joe Kotler has signed a national letter of intent to play baseball in 2013 at Division 1 school Lehigh University.   Kotler was the premier pitching recruit for Lehigh head baseball coach Sean Leary, and was offered a scholarship for his academic and athletic achievements.

An All-Anne Arundel County pick his sophomore and junior years, and an All-MIAA B Conference selection all three years, Kotler heads a Severn baseball team looking to make another playoff run this season.  In his three seasons, Severn has a 49-21 record, including last season’s 18-4 overall record.

Severn coach Hal Sparks has high praise for the right-handed pitcher.

“Joe has been our top pitcher since he was a freshman, and has won thirty games for us in his first three seasons,” said Sparks.

Severn has made the playoffs each of Kotler’s three years, and last year Kotler compliled a record of 10-1, with two saves and a 1.70 ERA, with 96 strikeouts in 66 innings.  Kotler enters his senior season with a 30-7 career record, four saves, and 254 strikeouts in 216 innings pitched.

Added coach Sparks, “Not only is Joe an outstanding baseball player, he is equally dedicated to academics and is one of Severn’s best student-athletes.  Lehigh Coach Leary expects Joe to have an impact his freshman year in college.”
