YORK, Pa. – The Salisbury University men's and women's track & field teams each tallied one Capital Athletic Conference weekly award on Tuesday. Senior Luke Campbell earned his first CAC men's track & field Track Athlete of the Week of the outdoor season, and junior Meghan McGowan garnered her first CAC women's track & field Field Athlete of the Week of the outdoor season, the league announced.

Fresh off of his third NCAA Division III indoor track & field 60-meter hurdles championship, Campbell ran in his first outdoor action of the season on Saturday in the Goucher College Classic, leading the Sea Gulls with first-place finishes in both of his races. In the 110-meter hurdles, he posted a time of 14.96 seconds, which is the ninth-best time in the country. Campbell then posted the No. 4 time in the nation in the 400-meter hurdles in 53.99 seconds.

McGowan was also in her first outdoor action of the season at the Goucher Classic, taking first in the high jump in the meet. Her height of 5' 4.5" was also good for third in the country.

The athlete of the week award is the third for McGowan for the 2015-16 season, as she won two indoor awards. Campbell also tallied one athlete of the week award during the indoor season, bringing his total for the year to two.

The Sea Gulls are back in action on Friday, April 1 in the Colonial Relays at the College of William and Mary.
