Emory University sophomore Richard Brereton was named the University Athletic Association's Pitcher of the Week as announced by the league office Monday afternoon.
Brereton flirted with perfection in his final start of the year, taking a perfect game into the sixth inning as he retired the first 17 NYU batters he faced. Brereton finished the outing with two runs allowed on two hits and one walk over eight innings of work as he improved to a perfect 4-0 in UAA contests and 5-4 overall. He struck out eight in the outing as Emory defeated the Violets, 5-2, in the series opener on Friday.
The Eagles closed out the 2018 season with an overall record of 20-18 and finished second in the UAA with an 11-5 mark.
