A native of Pasadena, Md., Weiman had 20 strikeouts in the series, including nine in Sunday's final game. In that contest, she allowed just two balls out of the infield. The sophomore now has six shutouts on the season and lowered her earned run average to 1.98, which ranks second in the conference.

Brown hit .667 in three games last week with three multi-hit games. A native of Levittown, N.Y., Brown had five RBIs and hit three home runs in two games against Georgia Tech. She now has 10 home runs on the season, which ranks second on the Tar Heels. For the week, she scored six runs on six hits and two walks, and did not strike out.
