Track & Field-

The Lions finished tenth as a team and Florian Obst won a National Title in the Men’s decathlon, and the 4X100 relay team set a school record and became only the 3rd Division II team to crack 39 seconds, and Head Coach George Pincock was named NCAA Division II South Central Coach Of The Year. This was the best season overall in years for the Track team and with many members coming back, could a team national title be in the cards next year? It is a real possibility. Here is a link to the full season records and results per Lionathletics.com- http://www.lionathletics.com/news/2017/5/27/lion-men-finish-10th-nationally-roberts-all-american-effort-in-triple-jump-puts-lion-women-in-points-for-first-time-in-six-years.aspx

The human performance major from Seattle, Washington was named a Second Team All-American by the Division II Conference Commissioners Association earlier as well, and was named the Lone Star Conference Newcomer of the Year and First Team All-LSC after a standout first season with the Lions. She was also named First Team All-South Central Region by the NFCA and the D2CCA. During the regular season, she led the nation in RBIs with 69 and co-led the nation with 20 home runs. She also led the nation in home runs per game. She was also in the top 10 in the nation in slugging percentage and total bases. She had 68 hits, which was third in the LSC and was sixth in the conference with a .407 batting average. Congrats to Mariah!

Finally, a congrats to Women’s Basketball Assistant Head Coach Markeith Brown who was named TABC Small College Assistant Coach of The Year.

The team also had the highest LSC win total in program history.
