TUCSON, Ariz. -- Wright State's Gabe Snyder and Matt Morrow were selected as Louisville Slugger Freshmen All-Americans Wednesday as they were announced by Collegiate Baseball newspaper.

Morrow (Richmond, Ind./Richmond) joined Snyder on the league's All-Freshman Team as he hit .309 on the season with 24 RBI, 39 runs scored and a .434 on-base percentage.  He hit .345 in league play while driving in 17.

The duo were the lone selections from the Horizon League. In 2014, Wright State catcher Sean Murphy was named to the same team.

The Raiders, who posted the second-most wins in a season in program history with 43, defeated Ohio and Notre Dame for their first NCAA victories since 1994.
