Men’s track victorious at C-USA Championships

If the Cougars keep winning Conference Championships at this rate, there will be little room to keep hanging banners in the Athletics/Alumni Center.

Head coach Leroy Burrell and the Cougars won their third consecutive Conference USA Outdoor Championship on Sunday scoring 175 points,
32 more than runner-up Tulsa.

“These guys are an amazing group of people,” head coach Leroy Burrell said in a release. “We’re very fortunate and blessed to have these student-athletes here that have set such a high standard. We have to keep fighting, keep pushing each other.”

Tyron Carrier earned the silver medal in the 100-meter dash, clocking in at 10.63 seconds. He placed third in the 200-meter dash with a time of 21.51 seconds. In the 110-meter hurdles Thomas Lang notched second place in 14.29 seconds, Leon Bullock followed him for third with a split of 14.33 seconds. Jason Perez placed second in the 400-meter hurdles.
