Weimer, Serwa Earn All-OVC Baseball Honors

Full All-OVC Team

MARION, Ill. – SIUE battery mates Brock Weimer (Edwardsville) and Kenny Serwa (Chicago) have each earned selection to the All-Ohio Valley Conference baseball team.

"I am happy for both of the guys to receive recognition from the league for their efforts this year," SIUE Head Coach Sean Lyons said. "I am really proud of both of them."

For Weimer, a senior catcher, it is his second All-OVC selection. He was a first team pick in 2017. He hit .298 for the season while finishing eighth in the OVC with 12 home runs and seventh with 15 doubles. His 48 RBIs were ninth most in the league. In OVC play, Weimer was 10th with .339 batting average and fourth with 11 doubles.

Weimer finished his SIUE career as the all-time home run leader with 35. He is No. 9 in school history with 140 RBIs.

"The body of work that Brock Weimer has had, not just this year but in his career at SIUE, speaks for itself," Lyons said. "It is great for him to end on a positive note."

Serwa, a redshirt-junior starting pitcher, earned All-OVC selection for the first time. Injury limited Serwa to just seven starts, but he finished at 3-2 with a 3.19 earned run average. He tossed a pair of complete games, becoming the first SIUE pitcher since 2014 to collect more than a single complete game. In OVC play, Serwa was 2-2, while finishing fourth in the league with a 2.89 ERA. Both of his complete games came in conference play.

"For Kenny, even with so few starts, to be recognized as that he is one of the top arms in our league is exciting for him," Lyons added.

The Cougars finished the OVC season at 11-19. SIUE was one game out of the OVC Tournament, which begins Tuesday night at Rent One Park.
