Eric Weiss Named Student-Athlete of the Week

CORPUS CHRISTI – Eric Weiss has been named the Student-Athlete of the Week, presented by Pepsi. Weiss earned the award after leading the Islanders to a series victory over Lamar. 

Weiss helped the Islanders win their final home series of the season as the team won 2-of-3 from Lamar. He hit .533 over the three game series, driving in five runs and scoring six to lead the way. Weiss had a hit and an RBI in the Islanders 9-7 win on Friday, and he followed with three hits, including a home run, in the Saturday game.  

He saved the best for last however, recording the first four-hit game of his Islanders career on Senior Day as the team won a thrilling 17-15 victory.
