Ramirez-Tejada Wins National and Regional Awards in Women’s Basketball

Junior Yuleska Ramirez-Tejada was awarded the United States Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) Women’s Division III Player of the Week and the New England Women’s Basketball Association (NEWBA) Player of the Week, marking the first National Player of the Week award in the history of Emmanuel College’s program and the second NEWBA award in Ramirez-Tejada’s career.

Ramirez-Tejada was also recently named the Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) Women's Basketball Player of the Week, also the second time in her career. Last season, Ramirez-Tejada was named to the GNAC Weekly Honor Roll six times and earned GNAC Player of the Week last February. She also received GNAC First-Team All-Conference Honors, scoring averages of 15.2 points per game and 9.7 rebounds per game last year

To begin the 2018-19 season, the Cambridge native averaged 35 points and 18 rebounds in the 35th Annual Emmanuel Tip-Off Classic, the Saints opening tournament, played this year against Gallaudet University and Westfield State University.

So far this season, the Women's Basketball team holds a 3-1 record, placing Coach Andy Yosinoff just four wins shy of setting the record number of career wins for a NCAA Division III women's basketball coach at 815.
