HANOVER, N.H. — The Ivy League announced its first weekly awards of the 2014 baseball season late Tuesday, and Dartmouth senior Jeff Keller was named the co-Player of the Week along with Columbia outfielder Jordan Serena. This is the third weekly honor for the outfielder from Atherton, Calif., having earned the award twice last year when he was an All-America honorable mention.

After leading the nation in doubles per game as a junior, Keller picked up right where he left off by swatting four two-baggers in the season-opening three-game series at 30th-ranked Florida International. The product of Menlo-Atherton High School went 7-for-13 (.538) for the series, collecting at least two hits in each game, scoring four runs, driving in three more and stealing two bases. He reached base at a .571 clip and slugged .846.

In the first game, he collected a pair of doubles in a shutout loss. But the next game, he sparked the offense and scored the first two runs of a 3-0 win thanks to his two singles and two stolen bases. Keller smacked three hits in the series finale, including a three-run double in the ninth, but Dartmouth came up on the short end of an 11-7 score.

The Big Green (1-2) are off this week for finals, but return to action against another ranked opponent on March 14-16 at #21 TCU. The first game on Friday, March 14, will begin at 7:30 (EST).
