Each week, the UTA Athletic Department spotlights a Texas Trust Scholar-Athlete of the Week to showcase the excellence in academic achievement of its student-athletes.
This week's honoree is redshirt freshman Cody Wernli, a right-handed pitcher on the UTA baseball team who sports a 3.917 cumulative GPA. Wernli, a native of Allen, Texas, redshirted the 2017 season while recovering from injury and returned over the summer to pitch for the Liberal BeeJays in the Kansas Jayhawk League. Over the summer, Wernli went 2-1 with a 2.62 ERA in five starts, fanning 23 in 24 innings.
