Ramirez and Ross claim TCU Student-Athlete of the Week accolades
Dec. 6, 2005
FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU swimmer Guillermo Ramirez and basketball player Adrianne Ross have been chosen as the TCU Men's and Women's Student-Athletes of the Week, respectively. Both are first-time recipients of the weekly award.
Ramirez, a junior, posted NCAA "B" cut qualifying times in both the 100- and 200-yard backstroke events at the University of Texas Invitational, the fastest meet in the country last week. The native of Cali, Colombia, placed seventh in the 200 back (1:47.66) with a personal record time on Saturday. One day earlier, he recorded a 15th-place finish in the 100 back with a personal-best clocking of 49.62. His seventh-place finish was the top performance of the UT Invite by any TCU male or female swimmer. In addition, his time in the 200 is the second-fastest in school history behind Craig Chapman (1:45.56).
Ross, a sophomore guard, led TCU in scoring in both games with nationally-rated schools Oklahoma and Southern Calfornia. She posted TCU single-game highs with 21 points and five steals against USC after having a 18-point performance against the Sooners. Over the two games last week, she averaged 19.5 points, 1.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 4.5 steals.
