SU Track And Field Program Earns Numerous Conference Accolades

Posted: Updated:

York, PA.- The Capital Athletic Conference released its outdoor track & field awards, and the Sea Gulls of Salisbury University picked up 32 all-conference members, including the Men's Athlete of the Year and Coach of the Year.

Sophomore Luke Campbell continues to rack up awards in his stellar career, as he was named the CAC Men's Athlete of the Year. The Brunswick, MD. native earned the honor from the league coaches after winning three CAC titles at the outdoor championships at Christopher Newport University. Campbell won the 110 and 400-meter hurdles, and was a member of the 4x400-meter relay championship team. This is Campbell's second Athlete of the Year award, having earned the indoor crown as well. Campbell also won the Rookie of the Year in both indoor and outdoor championships as a freshman last season.

Head Coach Jim Jones earned his eighth outdoor Men's Coach of the Year award, his third in a row. Jones has now collected 15 CAC Track and Field Coach of the Year awards, to go with his 13 awards in cross country.
In all, the men had ten first-team all performances. Junior Dylan Burkett earned a pair of first-team nods, in the shot put and javelin. The Sea Gulls also saw juniors Tyler Austin (100-meter dash) and Eric Wood (3,000-meter steeplechase) win awards.
Salisbury finished with 11 second-team performances, led by junior Devon Hopkins' finishes in the 110-meter hurdles, 400-meter hurdles and the triple jump. Austin took home the honor in the 200-meter dash while Thomas Burke earned his award in the 800-meter run. Sophomore George Martinez picked up his first All-CAC honor in the 1,500-meter run, while Burkett rounded out a big day in his finish in the hammer. The junior's effort was matched by classmates Ryan DiPascale (shot put) and Jeffrey Jordan (discus). Sophomore Xavier Stinson took place second place in the high jump and freshman Jason White also took second in the pole vault.
The men's program has collected 243 All-CAC selections all time, with 157 of those being all first-team selections.
The SU women earned third-place overall, and a pair of Gulls earned first-team honors. Sophomore Shannon Gilligan won the javelin throw, while freshman Meghan McGowan did the same in the high jump. The women added nine second-team honors as seniors Kara Tolson (100 and 200-meter dashes) also won the 4x400-meter relay with teammates senior Alex Greissinger, junior Ameera Teal, and sophomore Lauren Snyder. Junior Ashley Reilly won second place in the 110-meter hurdles, matching the result of senior Sadie Mangold in the hammer and freshman Sarah Taylor in the pole vault.
The SU Women's program now has 245 total All-CAC honorees, with 104 being first-team selections.
