PHILADELPHIA - Penn Junior Jeremy Maas was named the Ivy League Co-Player of the Week after batting .500 and helping the Red and Blue to a 3-2 record.
Maas started the season slow, but has come alive of late. The right fielder was the catalyst for the Quaker offense from the leadoff spot all week. The junior went 11-for-22 (.500) with a hit in all five games and four multi-hit games. He also had pair of three-hit games scored ten times on the week, while also driving in six runs, stealing two bases and recording a .560 on base percentage.
Against La Salle on Wednesday Maas went 3-for-5 while scoring three times and driving in two runs with his second home run of the season. On Saturday against Cornell, he homered on just the second pitch he saw and followed it up two innings later with another home run, this time on the first pitch of his at bat.
The junior is now batting .373 on the season, good for second on the team and third in the entire league. He also has seven doubles, four home runs and 17 RBI. Maas was also named Player of the Week once as a sophomore.
