LETU Competes in First Meet and grabs ASC Conference Honors

January 18, 2018

"I was very pleased with our effort today" said head coach Don Hood in a post-meet interview. "If what our athletes gave today was the foundation for our future, then we are going to build a good program." "What we discovered today is there is no substitute for experience and time invested in training." "We've got a lot of work to do, but I fully believe this group of athletes will give their best to reach their highest level." "Good performances are bound to follow hard work and desire."

 

LeTourneau Univeristy freshman track and field athletes Ro Galloway and Austin Parrish have been named American Southwest Conference Field Athletes of the Week for their performances at the Leonard Hilton Memorial Invitational in Houston, Texas on Friday, January 12th.  Galloway, freshman from Texarkana, Texas, helped set two initial school records on Friday, recording a long jump of 4.54 meters (14 ft. - 10.75 in.) to place 14th before running the 60 meter dash in 8.42 seconds.  A nursing major at LeTourneau University, Ro is the daughter of Kisie and Ronnie Galloway.  ASC Men's Field Athlete of the Week Austin Parrish earned his first career ASC award after earning a top-eight finish in his first collegiate track meet by clearing 4.30 meters (14 ft. - 1.25 in.) in the pole vault. The mark is currently tied for 42nd in the nation on the NCAA Division III performance list.  A Carthage, Texas native, Parrish is studying kinesiology at LeTourneau University and is the son of Randy Parish and Maria Marsh.
