NEW ORLEANS – The indoor track & field season had to heat up before it slowed down.
We saw some fast times and incredible debuts this past weekend across the nation before teams take a break for the holidays.
Here are those athletes who stood out among their peers and were named the National Athletes of the Week by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Tuesday.
NCAA DIVISION II MEN – Myles Pringle, Ashland
Junior | Sprints/Hurdles
Only two men in NCAA Division II right now have two automatic qualifying marks: Grant Colligan and Myles Pringle.
But only Pringle leads the nation in both of his events.
This past weekend at the Kent State Golden Flash Gala, Pringle surged into the national lead with a time of 47.00 in the 400. Pringle won the event title by nearly three seconds.
Just last week Pringle found his way into the national lead in the high jump at 2.15m (7-0½).
