NEW ORLEANS – The honors continue to come in for Salisbury University sophomore Luke Campbell. The track & field sensation not only collected a pair of national championships this past weekend, but was also honored by the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association as the Most Outstanding Performer for the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships.
Campbell set two school and facility records while winning his third and fourth career national championships in the 110- and 400-meter hurdles this past weekend.

Through just two seasons of competition, Campbell has collect four national championships and six All-American honors.
