With spring here the signing season is in full swing as today saw a total of seven Laredo athletes commit to playing sports at the collegiate level. At Alexander high school one of, if not the most accomplished swimmers to come out of UISD is off to Southwestern University. Martin Martinez will join the Pirates swim team this fall after making the state meet three times in his high school career and setting three different district records. The Bulldog was excited to sign his letter and know he is continuing to make a little bit of history in Laredo as the first boys swimmer to sign a scholarship.

Martinez plans to study biology in college but is still not sure what races he will compete in for the Pirates.
