Trey Hadnot, Chelsea Hayes Named WAC Athletes of the Week

Jan. 31, 2012

DENVER - Louisiana Tech sprinter Trey Hadnot (men's track) and jumper Chelsea Hayes (women's field) have been named the WAC Athletes of the Week.

Hadnot, a sophomore from Ruston, La. (Ruston HS), set a new school record in the 200-meter dash last weekend at the Arkansas State Invitational. His time of 21.04 topped Al Fullwood's time of 21.25 set in 2010. Hadnot leads the WAC by over half a second and his time currently ranks sixth in the nation. The 200-meters is Hadnot's specialty, as he competed for Team USA at last year's Pan American Junior Championships, claiming the bronze medal for the Americans.

Hayes, a senior from New Orleans, La. (Butler County CC), set a new school record in the long jump last weekend at the Arkansas State Invitational with a mark of 20-11.25 (6.38m). That is the second-best mark in the nation this year and leads the Western Athletic Conference by more than a foot and a half. It is almost two full feet better than any non-Louisiana Tech jumper in the conference. Hayes also set a school record to win the 55-meter dash (6.91), in addition to victories in the 200-meters (23.76) and as the second leg of the winning 4x400-meter relay team. She holds the fastest time in the WAC in four different distances.

Tech returns to action on Feb. 11-12 when the team competes at the Tyson Invitational in Fayetteville, Ark.
