CHARLESTON, S.C. - Sophomore men's swimmer Pablo Ortiz (Mauldin, S.C.) and senior women's tennis player Christin Newman (Greensboro, N.C.) earned College of Charleston Student-Athlete of the Week honors sponsored by Piggly Wiggly for the week of Jan. 21.

Ortiz helped lead the Cougars to their second straight meet victory, knocking off conference rival Gardner-Webb, 176-171. Ortiz won the 200 butterfly with a time of 2:07.21; he won the 100 butterfly in 57.76 and came in second place in the 400 meter IM (4:41.31). Ortiz also swam a leg of the 200 medley relay and the 400 medley relay, both of which came in second place.

A physical education major, Newman helped spur the Cougars to a season-opening victory over defending Big South champion Winthrop. Newman defeated No. 95-ranked Yasmine Alkema in the No. 1 singles by a thrilling score of 6-7, 7-6, 10-5. She also helped the Cougars capture the doubles point with a come-from-behind 8-6 victory.
