BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – After outstanding showings during the week, women’s lacrosse midfielder Caroline Dunleavy and women’s rowing’s Samantha Martinez have been named Florida Tech’s Panther Student- Athletes of the Week.

For her efforts in the contest, Dunleavy was named to the All-SSC Tournament Team. She also recorded her 100th career point in the defeat to the Tars.

Martinez was an integral part of the varsity eight boat that captured third at the SSC Championship with a time of 7:07.8. Ultimately, the performance helped the Panthers to their third consecutive third place showing at the conference championship.
Following the regatta, Martinez was named to the All-SSC Team, the second such honor for the senior in as many years.
The women’s lacrosse team completed its second season of existence with a 10-7 record, including a 2-2 mark in SSC play.
Women’s rowing continues its season May 13-14 at the Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta, set on the Schuykill River in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
