Campbell honored as outdoor championships' Most Outstanding Performer

NEW ORLEANS – Salisbury University men's track & field junior Luke Campbell continues to add to his list of accomplishments for the 2014-15 season, as he was named the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches' Association Division III Outdoor National Championship men's track Most Outstanding Performer, the organization announced.

At the NCAA Division III outdoor track & field national championships that took place from May 21 to May 23, Campbell tallied his third-straight 110-meter hurdles and second-straight 400-meter hurdles national championships, while anchoring Salisbury's fifth-place 4x400-meter and sixth-place 4x100-meter relay teams. Both relay teams set school records at the meet, while Campbell set the stadium record for St. Lawrence University's Merrick-Pinkard Track in the 400 hurdles (50.57 seconds) and the Salisbury all-conditions school record in the 110 hurdles (13.63 seconds)

Each year, the USTFCCCA honors the Outstanding Performers of the Meet at both of the national Division III championships. Winners are determined using a formula that takes into account team points scored plus meet records (five additional points), Division III season-bests (three points) and facility records (one point).

Campbell earned 25.75 points for his efforts to earn the honor.

This season was the Brunswick, Maryland native's second-straight year of sweeping the three hurdles national championships, as he won the indoor 60-meter hurdles championships during the winter season.

Campbell's tally now sits at seven total national championships and 11 All-American honors.
