Jeff Ronpirin, Jackson Weeg Collect UAA Baseball Weekly Honors

Jeff Ronpirin, Jackson Weeg Collect UAA Baseball Weekly Honors

Emory University seniors Jackson Weeg and Jeff Ronpirin were chosen as the University Athletic Association Baseball Athletes of the Week after helping the Eagles to a series sweep over Brandeis University this past weekend in Boston, MA.

Weeg pitched a seven-inning complete game shutout as Emory blanked the Judges 6-0 in the series opener. Weeg allowed just three hits, all singles, and did not walk a batter. He finished the outing with 11 strikeouts, his second consecutive double-digit strikeout performance and third of the season. The selection is Weeg's third of the year and seventh of his career.

Ronpirin earns his first career AOW after going 6-for-12 at the plate with four extra base hits to help carry the offense during the four-game sweep. Ronpirin collected two doubles, two triples and tied for the team lead with four runs batted in. He added a pair of walks and stole a base for the Eagles.

Emory is back in action Tuesday night with a non-conference matchup on the road against crosstown rival Oglethorpe University. First pitch is scheduled for 6:00 PM.
