Tech Posts 26 Athletes on All-Louisiana Track & Field Teams, Stanley Named Louisiana Coach of the Year

June 28, 2010

BATON ROUGE, La. - Louisiana Tech posted 26 athletes on the All-Louisiana track and field teams while longtime Tech head coach Gary Stanley was once again named the Louisiana women's Coach of the Year after guiding the Lady Techsters to two Western Athletic Conference titles.

LA Tech recorded a dominating 17 individual honors and was only one of two teams in the state to have all four relay teams receive all-Louisiana honors.

Stanley's award marks his 20th Coach of the Year title he has claimed after being honored as the women's WAC coach of the year during both the indoor and outdoor seasons this year. The state's track and field sports information directors voted on the special awards for top athletes and coaches of the year.

Albert Fullwood garnered four all-state honors in 2010, being named for his marks in the 200m and 400m dashes as well as the 4x100m and 4x400m relays. The all-state team is chosen by a list of the top three times or distances in the major outdoor events.

Only Mike Coleman (4x100m relay, 4x400m relay) and Larry Jones (shot put, discus) earned multiple all-Louisiana honors in addition to Fullwood.

On the women's side, four athletes received multiple all-Louisiana honors led by freshman Quanisha Sales in the 200m and 4x100m relay. Sales' freshman year in the 200m extended into late June as she advanced as far as the finals of the 200m at the USATF Junior Championships in Des Moines, Iowa last week.

Kamelia Stroy (400m, 4x400m relay), Monique Wright (400m, 4x400m relay) and Shante Benion (400m Hurdles, 4x400m relay) also received multiple all-state honors. Stroy ran the state's fastest time in the 400m dash with a mark of 53.09, set at the NCAA East Preliminary Championships in Greensboro, N.C. as she advanced to the NCAA Championships in Eugene, Ore.



Antoinette Cobb ran the state's fastest time in the 100m hurdles with a school record mark of 13.07 set at the WAC Outdoor Championships in Ruston as she won her fifth conference title of her career. Cobb's WAC title in the 100m hurdles, as well has her top three finishes in the 100m and 200m dashes, helped propel the Lady Techsters to their sixth consecutive WAC outdoor title.
