Westwood, MA --- WPI senior Jack Bauer (Cumberland, RI) has been honored by the NEWMAC as the Men's Co-Swimmer of the Week. It is the seventh time Bauer has been recognized as an individual overall and it is his second citation in three weeks.
Bauer handed in the fastest 100-yard backstroke (51.12) of the week in Division III and the third quickest 200-yard backstroke (1:55.00) amongst all NEWMAC student-athletes last week in a dual with Clark. Wednesday's meet also saw the senior contribute to a pair of winning relays. He followed up with wins in the 100-yard backstroke (52.33) and 100-yard freestyle (48.76), and aided another pair of successful relays (200 medley, 400 free), in a dual at Hartwick.
He shares this week's accolade with MIT junior Bouke Edskes (Rockville, MD) while MIT freshman Jay Lang (South Lyon, MI) and the MIT 200-yard medley claimed the diver and relay of the week honors, respectively.
The Engineers, who closed the dual meet portion of the schedule with a program record 14 wins, hosts the Tech Sprints on Saturday with sessions beginning at 9am and 4pm.
