GUION-FIRMIN, JOHNSON NAMED PRMC UMES ATHLETES OF THE WEEK
May 14, 2012
PRINCESS ANNE, Md. – Juniors Lenora Guion-Firmin (Martinique, France) and Tre-von Johnson (East New Market, Md.) have been named the Peninsula Regional Medical Center University of Maryland Eastern Shore Athletes of the Week for the week of May 14th. This is the third time in 2012 that Guion-Firmin has been distinguished, while Johnson collects it for the second time.
Guion-Firmin was the driving force for the women’s outdoor track team this week as she won two races to propel the Hawks to a sixth-place finish at the ECAC/IC4A Outdoor Championships. The junior opened with a second-place finish (24.05) in the 200m preliminaries, before taking the event with a time of 23.51. She went on to place second again in the 400m preliminaries, but would stomp the competition in the finals after she ran a 52.20 time to take first. Her effort gave the Hawks 20 points altogether.
Johnson became the baseball program’s all-time hits leader this past week. The centerfielder hit his first homerun of the week in the Hawks' 14-4 loss at Towson. In the Hawks’ opening game against Delaware State on Friday, Johnson made five putouts. The second game proved to be legendary as Johnson produced an RBI single in the first inning of the nightcap to take his place atop the UMES all-time hits record. All in all, Johnson finished 2-for-3 in the second game with one triple to move his hits number to 174. In the Hawks’ loss on Saturday, Johnson was 2-for-4 with two RBIs, one run and one walk. His effort pushed UMES to a 5-4 walk off victory over Delaware State, which was the Hawks’ 12th win of the year.
