Trey Hadnot Named Louisiana's Freshman of the Year

June 27, 2011


Louisiana Tech's Trey Hadnot was honored by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association Sunday by being named Louisiana's Freshman of the Year after winning four gold medals and being named the WAC Male Track Athlete of the Year.

Hadnot recently finished third at the USATF Jr. Championships in the 200m and will be an alternate on the U.S. Junior National Team this summer.

A Ruston native, Hadnot joined Dennis Richardson, Kevin Stewart and Josh Goree on the 4x100m relay team that ran the third-fastest time of any Louisiana Relay squad this year (40.00).

Also a Ruston native, Larry Jones had the state's best discus throw (186-0) and was listed second in the Pelican State with a shot put mark of 58-7.25. Alwayne Green was second in the state in the 800m (1:51.16) while Billy Ray Walker rounded out the Tech men's honorees with the state's second-best hurdles mark (14.06). 

On the women's side, Chelsea Hayes recorded the state's best long jump mark with a then-school record jump of 21-4 but recently topped even that with a mark of 21-5.25 at the USA Track and Field Championships Sunday. Hayes also ran on the 4x100m relay with Chasidee Lewis-Baker, Stacia Hanneman and Kim Francis that was second in the state's ranks (44.87) and ran with Monique Wright, Hanneman and Shante Benion that was second in the 4x400m relay (3:40.68).

Wright was also honored in the 400m with the second-best time in the state (53.51).

Jesseka Jones recorded the state's best heptathlon mark with a school record 5,088 points set at the WAC Championships this year while Micara Vassel was third in the state with a shot put throw of 47-1.
