CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Junior Jake Gelof was selected as the ACC Player of the Week on Monday (April 10). He takes home the honor for the second time in his career and is the first Cavalier to be recognized this season.
Gelof hit .438 (7-for-16) in a 4-0 week for the seventh-ranked Cavaliers. In the three-game sweep against No. 20 Miami, he was 7-for-14 (.500) with a double, triple, three home runs and nine RBI. He vaulted himself to the top of Virginia’s all-time home run list in the process and is now tied with E.J. Anderson (1995-98) for the most career homers in UVA history (37).
