GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – Junior Patrick Munroe (Williamsville, N.Y.) of the Wells College men's swimming program has been named the North Eastern Athletic Conference Men's Swimming Student-Athlete of the Week, the conference office announced Monday. The Express posted a 1-1 performance this past Saturday at the Fighting Tigers' triangular swim meet, drawing a tie against SUNY Cobleskill and posting a 65-34 victory against the Bison of Gallaudet University.
With the help of Munroe, Wells collected their first victory of the afternoon in the Men's 200 Yard Medley Relay as the Express foursome completed their runs with a combined time of 1:55.93. Their time ranks ninth all-time in program history. Munroe once again found himself a winner in the Men's 200 Yard Individual Medley, recording a field-best time of 2:20.54 in the day's 10th event. He eclipsed his previous personal record time of 2:21.85 and posted the fourth-best result in program history.
Continuing his personal hot streak, Munroe captured first place in the Men's 100 Yard Butterfly, turning in a time of 1:02.33. He once again bested his previous career high mark of 1:04.07 and posted the sixth-best time in program history. Munroe is the second men's swimmer from Wells to receive the Student-Athlete of the Week award this season as teammate Matthew Sleezer (Gloversville, N.Y.) received the award on Oct. 22.
