YORK, Pa. – The Capital Athletic Conference announced its 2016 men's and women's indoor track & field All-CAC teams on Friday, and the Salisbury University men's and women's teams were honored with a combined 18 total first- and second-team selections.
Senior Luke Campbell led the men's team with two individual first-team awards, while also being a member of the Sea Gulls' first-team 4x400-meter relay team. Campbell added his third-straight first-team honors in both the 400-meter dash and the 60-meter hurdles, after taking first in both of the events in the indoor CAC championships. He has been named to the All-CAC team for the 60 hurdles in each season with Salisbury, after also earning second team in 2013.
In the 4x400 relay, Campbell added his fourth-straight conference first-team honor in the event, while junior Jerel Madison and sophomores Zach Schmelz and Eric Halton all notched their second-consecutive first-team honors in the race.
Schmelz was also named to the All-CAC second team for the 400-meter dash for his first all-conference individual honor, as the Gulls took the top-two spots in the race during the indoor title meet.
Sophomore Ben Meister also earned his first-career, first-team all-conference honor after taking first in the 3,000-meter run; he set the CAC meet record in the event.
The Sea Gulls added two individual All-CAC selections in the field events. Sophomore Duncan Ferrin was named to the second team in the weight throw, marking his first all-conference honor. Classmate Matthew Adedeji tallied his first second-team honor, as well, after placing second in the triple jump.
Salisbury added another All-CAC second-team selection for the distance medley relay. Junior Tom McIntyre, sophomore Alieu Cole, and freshmen Emmanuel Porquin and Matt Boulden team up to earn the award; it was McIntyre's second-straight in the event.
