Trey Hadnot Named First Team All-America

March 14, 2013

NEW ORLEANS - Louisiana Tech sprinter Trey Hadnot was named to the All-America First Team by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) this week following his third place finish in the 200m at the NCAA Indoor Championships.

Hadnot’s honor marks the 54th All-America honor in program history and the Ruston native’s third All-America award but his first on the first team. The junior had previously received second team All-America honors in the 200m at the 2011 NCAA Outdoor Championships and at the 2012 NCAA Indoor Championships.

Overall, Louisiana Tech finished tied for 32nd at the 2013 NCAA Indoor Championships along with Alabama, Baylor, Kansas State, Loyola (Ill.), Nebraska, Notre Dame and TCU.

The Bulldogs beat traditional powerhouses including UCLA, Tennesee, Missouri, Ohio State, Kentucky, Illinois, California, Duke, Villanova, Iowa, Kansas, North Carolina, Colorado, Michigan, Washington and Rice at the 2013 NCAA Indoor Championships, to name a few.

First-team honors were given to those who placed in the championships’ top eight in an event or were a member of an eight-person final. Second team honors were earned by those who finished between ninth and 16th place. In addition, 11 men and nine women earned honorable mention honors. USTFCCCA membership by a program is required to earn All-America awards.

Hadnot was one of only seven recipients to receive All-America honors from the state of Louisiana and the only one from North Louisiana. The other six went to athletes from LSU.

He was also one of only six All-America recipients from the Western Athletic Conference. Of the membership to be in Conference USA next year (including Louisiana Tech), Hadnot is one of only six All-America honorees.

Louisiana Tech opens the 2013 outdoor season Saturday as Tech hosts the annual Jim Mize Invitational at the Jim Mize Track and Field Facility on its campus in Ruston.
