FRANKLIN SPRINGS, Ga. - This week's Athletes of the Week are Dikerrio Ramsey of Men's Track & Field and Pearllan Cipriano of Women's Tennis.
Dikerrio Ramsey is a Senior from Commerce, Georgia. A leader on his team, Dikerrio or "D" as he goes by, had the best race of his life last week. At the NCCAA Indoor National Championship, D won the 200 meter event to be crowned a National Champion. In the 60 meter event, D narrowly missed another championship, coming in second place by inches.
Pearllan Cipriano is a Junior from Taunton, England. In her third year at Emmanuel, Pearl plays the #2 spot for singles and #3 spot for doubles. Last week against conference opponent Erskine and Savannah College of Art & Design, Pearl played two matches of singles and doubles and finished with a perfect record. Pearl's victories helped the Lions win their first conference match of the season and helped them take down #16 ranked SCAD. Pearl is currently undefeated this spring season and has yet to drop a single set.
Congratulations to both Ramsey and Cipriano on their impressive performances!
