Campbell, White, Jones lead men's and women's track & field in CAC awards

YORK, Pa. – The Capital Athletic Conference announced its 2014 All-CAC Indoor Track & Field Teams and Salisbury University was honored with 20 overall selections, led by sophomore Luke Campbell, who was named the Men's Co-Athlete of the Year, freshman Zack White, who was named the Men's Rookie of the Year and Head Coach Jim Jones, who was named the Men's Coach of the Year.

Campbell won three events at last weekend's CAC Indoor Championships, taking the 60-meter hurdles, the 400-meter dash and was part of the 4x400-meter relay win to be named the Athlete of the Year, following his Rookie of the Year award in 2013. Campbell is the second Sea Gull to earn the award, after Jacob Adedeji earned the honor last year.

White was named first-team All-CAC in the long jump and second-team in the triple jump, breaking school records in each event which had stood since 1976, to be named the league's Rookie of the Year. White is the third-straight Sea Gull to win the CAC honor during the indoor season.

Jones' Coach of the Year Award is his third in three CAC indoor seasons, being named the men's Coach of the Year in 2013 and the Women's Coach of the Year in 2012.

Campbell was joined on the first team for the 4x400-meter relay win by juniors Devon Hopkins, Thomas Burke and Tyler Austin. Burke was also a first-team selection for his win in the 800-meter run.

Salisbury had two other first-team honorees in the throwing events, with junior Ryan DiPascale claiming the spot with his victory in the shot put and classmate Dylan Burkett landing on the first team with his win in the weight throw.

Austin also earned second-team honors for his performance in the 60-meter dash.

Junior George Martinez earned second-team honors with his finish in the 3,000-meter run, just behind Men's Co-Athlete of the Year Tim Hartung from York College of Pennsylvania.

Junior Brandon Horning took second-team honors for his performance in the mile and sophomore Xavier Stinson landed on the second team following his showing in the high jump.

Freshman standout Sarah Taylor earned first-team honors on the women's side for her school record-setting performance in the pole vault and senior Sadie Mangold did so with her efforts in the weight throw.

Senior Kara Tolson was a two-time second-team performer, doing so in the 60-meter dash and the 4x400-meter relay. Tolson was joined on the 4x400 relay team by senior Alex Greissinger, junior Ameera Teal and sophomore Lauren Snyder.

Freshman Meghan McGowan was placed on the second team following her efforts in the high jump.

The Sea Gulls will be back in action this Sunday, March 2 at the George Mason Winter Games.
