Chris Martinez (El Paso, Texas) has been named the NEAC Men’s Swimmer of the Week for the third straight time after another record-breaking performance for the Gallaudet University Bison. The freshman continued his impressive debut season by setting his fifth school record in as many meets while leading the Bison to a dual meet victory over NEAC foe Cazenovia College Saturday.  Martinez placed first in the 100-yard individual medley with a time of 1:01.33, erasing the previous program record of 1.03:33 held by Gideon Firl.  Martinez then flew to a first-place finish in the 100-yard butterfly with a time of 0:58.43 as the Bison posted their second straight head-to-head victory. Martinez also recorded the top time while swimming the 100-yard breaststroke event as an exhibition after touching the wall in 1:06.87.
