SIOUX FALLS, S.D.—South Dakota freshman Brithton Senior has been named the Summit League Indoor Track Athlete of the Week for the period ended Feb. 16. This marks his second award of the year.
Hailing from Hanover, Jamaica, Senior has made a name for himself in his inaugural season with the Coyotes. He tied the South Dakota program record for the 60-meter hurdles, set by his hurdles coach Teivaskie Lewin in 2015, with a clocking of 7.77 seconds this weekend.
Senior won the race at the Iowa State Classic, topping a field filled with runners from Iowa State, Kansas State, Minnesota, Tulsa, Northern Iowa and Illinois State. His time was two-hundredths of a second faster than his previous best.
Senior leads the Summit League and ranks 21st in the NCAA in the 60-meter hurdles this season.
South Dakota returns to the Bob Devaney Sports Center for the Nebraska Tune-Up this Friday afternoon in Lincoln, Nebraska.
