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