Athlete of the Week 4/29: Will Simoneit

RELEASE: ITHACA, NY– BRSN has named senior catcher Will Simoneit as this week’s Athlete of the Week. On Sunday, Simoneit hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth to lead the baseball team to an 8-7 walk-off win over Penn. It was the second home run of the day and the third of the three-game series for the Glen Ellyn, Ill. native. Simoneit finished the day 3-for-5 with two home runs and a stolen base. All five of his RBI came on his homers in the seventh and ninth innings, the latter of which served as Cornell’s first walk-off home run since an Ivy League Championship Series-clinching shot by Chris Cruz ’13 on May 6, 2012. Cornell is scheduled to return to action at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, when it makes a non-league trip to Binghamton before closing out its Ivy League season next weekend with three games at Dartmouth.
