TU's Bryce Robinson Earns AAC Athlete Of The Week Honors
TULSA, Oklahoma -
The University of Tulsa senior sprinter Bryce Robinson earned American Athletic Conference Male Track Athlete of the Week honors for the third time in his career and the second time this season, as announced today by the American Athletic Conference.
Last weekend at the Husker Invitational, Robinson won the men's 200-meter dash with a time of 20.63, after placing second in the men's 60-meter dash with a time of 6.62. This is Robinson's third event title in the 60-meter dash this season, and it's his second event title in the 200-meter dash. Robinson's 200-meter dash time was the second-best time of the college track and field weekend, and his 60-meter dash time was the third-best time last weekend among all NCAA track and field athletes. Not only did Robinson set a new personal best in the 200-meter dash with a mark of 20.63, but he set a new school record blowing past his previous time of 20.70. He now holds all of the top five times in program history in the 200-meter dash.
According to the Track & Field Results Reports System, the quick-footed senior's 20.63 time in the 200-meter dash is the third-best performance nationally this year in that event. Robinson also tied his season-best time of 6.62 in the 60-meter dash, which is the second-best time in the American and tied for fifth among all NCAA track and field athletes.
The Golden Hurricane will be back in action this Friday, Feb. 12, as it travels to Ames, Iowa to compete in the Iowa State Classic.
