Chris Martinez (El Paso, Texas) has been chosen as the NEAC Men’s Swimmer of the Week for the second straight week after another tremendous performance for the Gallaudet University Bison.  The freshman recorded three of Gallaudet’s seven event wins to help the Bison post a 91-59 victory over Ferrum College last Saturday for the squad’s first win of the season.  Martinez took first place in three different individual events, starting with being the first to touch the wall in the 400-yard individual medley (IM) with a time of 4:40.59.  He was also first out of four swimmers in the 100-yard freestyle with a time of 0:55.85 that gave him the victory by over 10 seconds, before closing the day being first out of four swimmers in the 100-yard breaststroke with a time of 1:07.59.
