Sam Datri (Ravena, N.Y.) has been named the NEAC Men’s Swimmer of the Week after a record-setting performance for the SUNY Cobleskill Fighting Tigers.  The sophomore made program history on the diving board while helping the Fighting Tigers capture a 121-82 road victory over Bard College last Saturday.  Datri won the one-meter diving competition with a score of 450.59 points, which set a new 11-dive record for Cobleskill and also met the NCAA Division III Regional qualifying standards for the event.  Datri was also strong in the lanes, swimming a leg of the 200-yard freestyle relay that placed first with a time of 1:39.71, while also placing second out of five in the 100-yard freestyle individual event with a time of 0:57.34.  The Fighting Tigers’ victory helped them improve to 5-2 overall versus head-to-head competition on the year.
