Rider’s Athletes of the Month for April
Baseball’s Wayman, Track’s Ransome

Adam Wayman of the baseball team and Dashana Ransome of the track & field team were named the Rider University Athletes of the Month for all competition in April, 2013.

Wayman, a senior third baseman from Wilkes-Barre, Pa. (G.A.R. Memorial), batted .340 in 20 games in April with 26 hits and 12 RBI. Wayman led the Broncs to a first place 9-3 MAAC record in April.

In a MAAC win at Manhattan, Wayman hit a home run for his 200th career hit, just the seventh Bronc to ever collect 200 hits.

Ransome, a freshman from Irvington, NJ, set three more Rider records in April, breaking the team record in the 100m hurdles (twice), the long jump (18’6”) and the 4 x 100 relay (47.14).  In all three of those events Ransome currently ranks first in the MAAC.

At the Rider Invitational Ransome won both the 100m dash and the 100m hurdles. She set the Rider 100m hurdles record of 14.14 in both the Colonial Relays at William & Mary and in the Larry Ellis Invitational at Princeton.

Rider hosts the MAAC Track & Field Championships May 4-5 on the campus track and hosts the MAAC Baseball Championship tournament May 23-26 at ARM & HAMMER Park in Mercer County.
