ARLINGTON, Texas - UT Arlington sprinter Clayton Vaughn was recognized as the Western Athletic Conference male track athlete of the week, the league office announced today. It is the second WAC weekly honor for Vaughn, who previously earned the distinction during the indoor season (Jan. 16).
Vaughn, a junior from Sulphur Springs, Texas, easily won the 100 meters at the season-opening TCU Invitational last week. He posted a personal-best time of 10.13, the second-fastest clocking in school history, to win by .18 over the next-closest competitor in the 28-person field.
His time, which was wind-aided (4.3 m/s), would rank as the nation's top time if it hadn't been slightly above the standard wind allowed (4.0 m/s). It still qualifies as the best time in the WAC this season.
Vaughn and his teammates will be in action this Saturday at UTA's Bobby Lane Invitational at Maverick Stadium.
