Joplin Eagles Chris Martucci signed his letter of intent to swim for Ashland University. Joplin athletic staff adds ” Chris has improved tremendously over the last three years. He has a great work ethic and strives to be the best in every race he swims. His goal this season was to make top 8 in his events at State. He fell short by three places, but was able to come back and swim on Saturday for the consolation finals. He lowered his time in both events (100 fly, 200 free) at State. I am excited and happy that is Chris is going to continue his swimming career at Ashland. He is going to do well while he is there. The training is completely different from anything he has done in the past. This will help him excel in the pool. I wish him the best of luck!”
