Release: 12/10/2012
Brian Molloy - Rider University
Men's Swimming & Diving, Sr., 6-1, 175, Toms River, N.J./Toms River HS East

Brian Molloy is getting his name etched into the Rider swimming annals on a weekly basis. In a win over Seton Hall, he broke the oldest record in the Coppola Pool, the 100 free (46.58), a record that stood since 1987. Twice the MAAC Swimmer of the Week this season, Molloy now ranks among Rider's top five fastest times in five different events. A Mathematics major and a member of the MAAC All-Academic team, he helped Rider defeat Seton Hall, La Salle and Marist this season. Against Marist, Molloy won four events and he won three events against La Salle. Molloy, who qualified for the prestigious Speedo Grand Prix meet in three events, picked up his first MAAC gold last year on the 200 free relay and is currently the top ranked swimmer in the MAAC in four individual events and four relays.

Through nine games this season, Martinez is right where she left off a year ago, sitting atop the MAAC scoring ledger, leading the conference with her 17.8 points per game.
