EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – SIUE Athletics has joined with Prairie Farms Dairy, Inc., to take time each week to honor a Cougar student-athlete who excels both in competition and in the classroom.
This week's honoree is baseball student-athlete Brock Weimer. The junior from Edwardsville, Illinois, is studying business and carries a 3.48 grade point average.
Weimer leads the Cougars this season in slugging percentage (.479) and home runs (6). The catcher also has 11 doubles on the year, which is tied for the team lead.
SIUE will be back in action when it plays host to Austin Peay for a three-game weekend Ohio Valley Conference home stand at Simmons Complex. The first game is set for Friday at 6 p.m.
