FORT WORTH, Texas – TCU senior Mychal Dungey has been selected as the Mountain West Conference Co-Men’s Outdoor Track & Field Athlete of the Week, the league office announced Tuesday. Dungey shared the honor with BYU’s Sean Richardson.
Dungey ran a personal-best time of 46.59 in the 400 meters at the Bobby Lane Invitational, hosted by UT Arlington on April 2. The clocking was good enough to lead all collegiate entries and second overall behind former Frog Lewis Banda (46.54). Dungey also paced the Frogs in the 200 meters, posting a seasonal-best time of 20.92 to earn fourth among collegians.
The Austin, Texas, native was also a member of the Frogs' first-place 4x100 meter squad, joining forces with OJ Stoneham, Charles Silmon and Mark Barnes to clock in at 39.62. The time is the fastest output for the foursome this spring, leads the MWC and is sixth nationally. The time serves as the fourth-fastest relay clocking in league history.
The league honor is the third of Dungey’s career after being recognized once in 2009 and 2010. TCU has now accepted the honor twice this outdoor season. Senior Jessica Young also earned the award after her record-breaking performance at the Arizona State Invitational.
The Frogs will head south this weekend for the 84th Annual Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays in Austin, Texas, April 6-9.
