Infielder Victor Ramos has been named the Marshall University Student-Athlete of the Week for his solid all-around play at the Caravelle Resort Invitational hosted by Coastal Carolina.

The Miami, Fla., native had a huge weekend at the plate, finished with a .500 average, collecting seven hits in 14 at bats, along with a .588 on-base percentage and a .857 slugging percentage.

Ramos cracked two hits or more in three of the four games, and in the finale against Ball State, Ramos had a career day, going 3-for-4 with four runs scored (both career-highs), two RBI and was a homer shy of the cycle to help lead the Herd past the Cardinals.

Not only was Ramos impressive at the plate, he played flawlessly in the infield making three starts at second and the fourth at third.  In the win against Quinnipiac, Ramos made a crucial diving stop deep in the hole between first and second to end the seventh with the bases loaded to keep the lead intact.
