South Florida's Juli Weber Dismissed From Team

Juli Weber
Reigning American Conference Player of the Year Juli Weber has been dismissed from South Florida, according to a report from SBNation's Bulls-centric site The Daily Stampede.

Weber had led the program in several offensive categories last season, including batting average (.406) and at-bats (192). She was named the American Athletic Conference's Player of the Year and was named to the Top 50 National Player of the Year watch-list prior to this season.

The senior had seen a diminished role to begin this season, playing in just five of her team's first eleven games and recording a .125 batting average in sixteen at-bats thus far this season.

No reason has been given for Weber's departure, though in a statement to the Daily Stampede, South Florida coach Ken Eriksen did say, in part, 'This was purely a coach's decision that I felt was in the best interest of the program and the success of our team moving forward'.

Requests for comment were not immediately returned.

  1. This player is one of the most oustanding kids I have seen to ever play the game.
    All recruits should take notice of coaches who clearly cannot work with players going through a rough start and who clearly have contributed greatly to their programs. Ken Eriken is one of those coaches. Why anyone would want to play for him is beyond me!
