PRINCETON, N.J. -- The race to the Ivy League baseball Championship Series officially gets underway this week, with the start of conference play on Saturday, March 29.

It's cross-divisional double-headers to kick off the League slate. Saturday features Yale (7-9) at Penn (5-10), Brown (4-6) at Columbia (5-12), Harvard (4-13) at Princeton (5-11), all on The Ivy League® Digital Network. Also taking place on Saturday is a rematch of the 2012 Championship Series, with Dartmouth (3-9) at Cornell (7-7).

The next day, Yale faces Columbia, Brown plays Penn and Dartmouth travels to Princeton, all on The Ivy League® Digital Network, while Cornell hosts Harvard.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Penn sophomore Gary Tesch (Cypress, Texas) helped the Quakers take three of four from Lafayette over the weekend, batting .462 (6-for-13) with a double and a home run for a slugging percentage of .769. He scored twice and knocked in four runs, while stealing two bases. Tesch recorded a hit in each of the four games last week, including a 3-for-5, one-double, one-run, two-RBI performance in the final game, an 11-7 Penn victory.

Tesch earns his first career Ivy League weekly award.

Tesch's Weekly Stats
4 GP, .462 AVG. (6-for-13), .769 Slugging %, 2 Runs, 1 2B, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 2 SB

CO-PITCHERS OF THE WEEK
Dartmouth went 2-4 last week with a pair of three-game series against Nebraska-Omaha and at No. 18 Kansas, and sophomore righthander Duncan Robinson (Houston) picked up both victories for the Big Green. Robinson limited Omaha to four hits and two runs over seven innings of work, striking out three in a 10-3 victory. He then came on in the bottom of the ninth at Kansas with the game tied 2-2, pitching two innings while allowing just one hit as Dartmouth went on to win in 10 innings, 3-2.

Robinson is the first Big Green to be named Pitcher of the Week this season, taking home his first career Ivy League weekly award in the process.

2 APP, 1 GS, 9.0 IP, 5 Hits, 2 R, 2 ER, 4 BB, 4 K, 2.00 ERA, 2-0

All Princeton senior lefty Michael Fagan (San Diego) did last week was pitch a one-hit, complete game shutout at Navy, going the distance for the first time in his career and recording his first-ever shutout. Fagan pitched all seven innings, striking out eight batters in a 1-0 win over the Mids.

Fagan earns his first career Ivy League weekly honor and is the first Tiger to be named Pitcher of the Week in 2014.

He batted .417 in the three games (5-for-12), including a double and a home run for a slugging percentage of .750. He recorded at least one hit and one run in each of the three games, finishing the week with three runs and five RBI.

In the two wins, Sredojevic batted 4-for-8 with two runs, a double, a home run and five RBI. He is the second Bear to earn Rookie of the Week in 2014, joining Christian Taugner (March 11).
