PHILADELPHIA – With its best Spring Trip in nine years in the record books, Penn swept the Ivy League’s weekly baseball honors.
Jeremy Maas was named Player of the Week while teammate Paul Cusick was named Pitcher of the Week. Rounding out the sweep was freshman pitcher Trey Jennings, who was named Rookie of the Week.
Maas doubled up on his weekly honors, picking up Big 5 Player of the Week honors as well.
Maas definitely remembered to pack his swing on the Spring Trip, hitting .516 for the week. For the season, the sophomore is hitting .524. This past week, he had multi-hit games in all but one contest, reaching the three-hit plateau in three games. He had 16 total hits – nine for extra bases. He has an OPS of 1.404 for the season.
Maas’ classmate, Paul Cusick has won his last two starts, including a 7.1 inning, three-run performance over Georgetown this week in a 9-4 win. He struck out six Hoya hitters in the win, bringing his total to 18 on the season.
Trey Jennings provided one of the standout performances of the week, coming out of the pen to stop the bleeding against Rollins on Wednesday. With Penn trailing, 9-2, he pitched 6.1 innings of relief – allowing only one run – as Penn rallied for an 11-10 win. The victory was the first of Jennings’ collegiate career.
Maas is the second Quaker to be named Player of the Week, joining Tom Grandieri, who earned the honor the first week of the season. The full release can be found here.
