April 24, 2013

DENVER - Louisiana Tech’s Yusuf Muhammad was named the Western Athletic Conference Men’s Indoor Track and Field Athletes of the Week for the week of April 15-21.

Muhammad, a junior from Phoenix, Ariz. (New Mexico), ran the fourth-fastest 400m hurdles time in Louisiana Tech history last weekend at the LSU Alumni Gold meet in Baton Rouge, La. His time of 50.90 is the best time in the WAC by over a half-second and ranks No. 2 in the NCAA East Preliminary qualifying list and No. 10 in the nation.

Louisiana Tech returns to action this week at the Bobcat Classic in San Marcos, Texas in the team’s final tune-up before the 2013 WAC Outdoor Championships.
