Weemaels pitched for the Cavaliers against rival Neumann on Saturday, April 6th playing a full nine innings. The Cavaliers came out on top with a 4-2 win over Neumann, with two runs on seven hits.

Kyran Weemaels, a junior chemistry major, said, “It is a honor to win this honor but this is just for one game we still have more games to play and more to look forward to.”

Weemaels, from Airdrie, Alberta, is having a strong season with a 3-0 record and a 1.82 ERA out of 29.2 innings pitched.

Tyler Ronayne, a senior criminology major, said, “The kid is a leader on and off the field. He goes above and beyond to make sure the team succeeds.”

The “Diamond Cavs” are currently 23-7 and ranked number one in with a 9-1 record in the Atlantic East conference.

Dustin Malandra, head strength and conditioning coach, said, “The whole team

has worked so hard both in the off season and in their regular season. It’s great to see all of their hard work pay off.”

Weemaels said, “We are just trying to take one game at a time. We support each other no matter what and I think that is why we have been so successful this year we have each others back through the ups and downs.”

As the conference tournament approaches and many keeping a close eye, the team looks to end the regular season with a statement.

Jesse James Murphy, a junior accounting major, said, “We’ve been doubted on for a while but in our third year as a program we’ve accomplished things that no one expected in a million years.”

Head coach Nick Weisheipl has built the program from the ground up since being hired in August of 2015, more than a year before the Cavaliers would play their first game.

The Cavaliers are batting .288 as a team and averaging more than eight runs a game. Their pitching staff has a solid ERA of 4.28

Head coach Nick Weisheipl, said, “Letting guys know that they are the first of everything and there might be some bumps along the way but this is opportunity to be trailblazers in a new venture.”

The Cavaliers look to continue their success with only five regular season games left in the season
