Mercer sophomore goalkeeper Greg Ranjitsingh was named the Crons "Achiever Award" winner for the month of September on Wednesday afternoon.

The monthly award sponsored by the Atlantic Sun Conference is presented to an athlete recognized by a fan vote for the most notable achievement from the month prior.

Ranjitsingh secured exactly 50 percent of the fan vote to claim the award over five other student-athletes representing fellow A-Sun Conference institutions. Ranjitsingh is now the second-straight Mercer student-athlete to win the award, as women's soccer sophomore Lauren Gassie also claimed the honor for her efforts in the month of August.

Ranjitsingh had a memorable month in goal for the Bears, leading a Mercer defensive unit that allowed just five goals in the entire month of September. Ranjitsingh recorded four shutouts in September and was named the A-Sun Conference Defensive Player of the Week on two separate occasions. With those four shutouts, the Pickering, Ontario native is now up to 13 clean sheets in his career, moving him into seventh place for the most shutouts in A-Sun Conference history. As of October 17, Ranjitsingh leads all A-Sun Conference goalkeepers in every major statistic, including wins (8), goals against average (0.83), save percentage (.851) and shutouts (6).

The Crons "Achiever Award" is the second major honor Ranjitsingh has received in as many weeks, after being one of just 11 players in the country named to the National Team of the Week on October 8.

Ranjitsingh and the rest of the Bears resume A-Sun Conference play on October 18 when they travel to Jacksonville to take on North Florida. Game time is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Hodges Stadium.
