Metro roundup: Rose swimmer honored as CCIW’s best

TERRE HAUTE — Rose-Hulman sophomore Orion Martin of Dublin, Ohio, has been named the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin Male Swimmer of the Year for the second consecutive year, according to voting by league coaches.

Martin becomes the first two-time Conference Swimmer of the Year in Rose history and is just the second student-athlete named as the top swimmer in the league. Matt Smith in 2002 was the other.

Martin earned All-American honors with a seventh-place finish in the men’s 100-yard butterfly at the NCAA Division III championships in March. He also won the men’s 100 butterfly in the CCIW championships for the second consecutive year.

The All-American honor marked Rose-Hulman’s first since Matt Smith won a national championship in 2003. His efforts helped Rose finish second in the team scoring at this year’s CCIW championships to set a new program record.

At this year’s CCIW championships, Martin also placed second in the 100 freestyle (46.34), third in the 50 freestyle (21.33) and was part of the second-place 400 freestyle relay (3:06.61), the second-place 400 medley relay (3:26.83), the second-place 200 medley relay (1:33.94) and the second-place 800 freestyle relay (6:54.94).

Martin’s career includes two individual conference championships, six individual all-conference awards, seven all-conference relay performances and three relay league championships. He also owns school records in the 100 butterfly, 100 freestyle, 200 freestyle and is part of five relay school records.


• Sycamores honored
— For 11 consecutive weeks, Indiana State has had at least one athlete named to the Missouri Valley Conference Athlete of the Week award. This week, the league office announced that ISU senior Mary Theisen and sophomore Katie Wise earned the honor.

This was Wise’s ninth honor of the 2013-14 season, but fourth of the outdoor season. She continued her dominant season by winning the Jesse Owens Classic title in the women’s 100-meter dash against Big Ten Conference powers Ohio State and Michigan State. Wise won the sprint in a time of 11.52 seconds over Ohio State’s Ashlee Abraham, who finished second in 11.65.

Wise ranks seventh nationally in the event with her time of 11.25 from last week’s Illinois Twilight meet. She also ran a relay leg of the Sycamores’ 400 relay team that placed second in 46.20, behind Ohio State’s winning time of 44.56.

Theisen earned her fifth honor of the ’13-14 season and third of the outdoor season. She proved just how tough she can be in the throws in the Jesse Owens Classic when she won the shot put, placed third in the discus and placed fifth in the hammer throw to move up the national lists. Her throw of 53 feet, 3 inches was enough to win the shot put by almost a foot over Danniel Thomas of Kent State.

Theisen’s throw of 176-7 in the discus placed third, but moved her up to 20th in the nation. Theisen’s fifth-place showing in the hammer throw was 187-9, but it moved her up to 63rd in the nation.

• Sycamores win 11 events at EIU — At Charleston, Ill., Indiana State picked up 11 event wins at the Eastern Illinois University Tuesday Tweener, a meet that featured a limited schedule but some good competition between the two rivals.

Sophomore Dawnielle Passmore led the Sycamores with two victories in women’s throws. She won the shot put with a heave of 44 feet, 03⁄4 inches and the hammer throw with a toss of 158-11.

Next up for the Sycamores are the Drake Relays, which began Wednesday at Des Moines, Iowa, and will continue through Saturday.
