DANBURY, Conn. – The weekly awards continue to come for the Salisbury University men's and women's track & field teams this week, as junior Luke Campbell was named the Eastern College Athletic Conference Division III South men's Athlete of the Week, and freshman Chanel Beaudoin was honored as the ECAC Division III South women's Rookie of the Week, the league announced.
This marks Campbell's third award this week, as he used a strong showing at the Colonial Relays at College of William and Mary on Friday and Saturday to move into the top ranks in the country in the 110- and 400-meter hurdles to also earn Capital Athletic Conference Athlete of the Week and the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Division III National Athlete of the Week. He finished second in both races at the meet with a 14.07-second time in the 110 hurdles and a 52.17-second time in the 400 hurdles and was the best DIII participant in both.
Campbell's 110 time now sits first in the country, while his 400 time ranks No. 2 in the nation.
Beaudoin earned her first ECAC weekly award with her effort at the Colonial Relays, leading the Sea Gulls in the 200- and 400-meter dashes.
She took 26th in the 200, with a time of 25.45 seconds, marking the second best DIII time in the meet. She now sits 12th in the country with her time in the event, while setting a new personal best. Beaudoin then placed 22nd in the 400 with a 58.63-second time; her time was the fourth-best finish among DIII competitors.
