Rider Athletes of the Month March, 2014

A pair of Rider University seniors capped off their careers with outstanding performances and were honored for their efforts.

Ramon Santiago of the wrestling team and MyNeshia McKenzie of the basketball team were voted the Rider Athletes of the Month for March.

Santiago went 6-2 on the mats in March, at the Eastern Wrestling League Championships and at the NCAA Division I Championships.

McKenzie compiled 53 points and 32 rebounds in a pair of Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference playoff wins, leading Rider to its first-ever MAAC semifinal game.

McKenzie finished second in the MAAC in both scoring and rebounding to earn First Team All-MAAC honors and graduates as Rider’s career rebound leader (1,133) and third in career scoring (1,619 points).

Santiago won his weight class at the EWL Championships, defeating the 15th ranked wrestler in the nation on the way.  At Nationals, Santiago won three times, including a victory over the 10th ranked wrestler.

Santiago went 23-14 as a senior and graduates with 88 career wins.
