FORT WORTH, Texas - After winning 10 of the 28 events on the final day of competition at the 2010 Mountain West Conference Outdoor Championships this past weekend, the TCU track and field team was honored on Monday with the announcement of the league's Men's and Women's All-MWC Outdoor team.
As announced by the league office, TCU had 20 student-athletes named to the Mountain West Conference Men's and Women's Outdoor Track and Field team. Following a third-place finish the men's team had nine honorees, while the women's team had 11 selections after earning runner-up honors.
In total, TCU's men's team had all-conference selections in eight events, while the women's team had all-conference selections in 11 different events.
Headlining the Frogs selections on the men's side was Mychal Dungey who made the squad four times, while both Jordan Pitts and Charles Silmon were honored three times. Earning all-conference accolades in two different events were Dell Guy and Clint Renfro.
On the women's side, Chaniqua Corinealdi and Kristal Juarez earned all-conference recognition in three different events, while Quinterra Charles, Neidra Covington, Whitney Gipson, Larissa Matthews and Rose Tanui were all-conference honorees in two events.
Dungey had a solid outing this past weekend as he clipped Silmon at the line in the 200 meters with a personal-best time of 20.64 seconds to win his second-consecutive conference title. Dungey's time is the second-fastest time ever recorded in MWC Championship history and the third-best all-time in league history. The junior was also strong in the 100 meters, clocking a seasonal-best time of 10.38 seconds to finish third overall. He also helped both relays cross the finish line in first and second-place, respectively, to garner all-conference recognition.
Silmon had a dominating weekend as he not only captured the event-title in the 100 meters, but also turned in a runner-up performance in the 200 meters. In the 100 meters, the freshman blazed to a personal-best time of 10.24 seconds to capture his first conference title of his young career and earn all-conference recognition. By winning the 100 meters, Silmon was named the Mountain West Conference Men's Most Outstanding Performer. He came back later in the day to finish second overall in the 200 meters. In the event, Silmon earned runner-up accolades with a personal-best time of 20.65 seconds.

Corinealdi, a freshman from Killeen, led TCU in the women's 100 meters on Saturday, earning runner-up accolades with a seasonal-best time of 11.71 seconds. She also earned all-league honors in the 200 meters and 4x100, finishing third overall in the 200 meters with a seasonal-best time of 23.93 seconds.
Juarez earned all-conference accolades after capturing gold medal honors in the women's 400 meters with a seasonal and personal-best time of 52.91 seconds. With the win, Juarez, who became the second-consecutive Horned Frog to capture first-place accolades in the 400 meters, moved into the top 25 in the NCAA.
