North Texas Sprinter Rewarded Once Again
In what is becoming a common occurrence, sophomore sprinter Keyth Talley was selected on Monday the Sun Belt Conference Performer of the Week for a second week in a row.
DENTON, Texas (1/26/10) - For a second consecutive week, sophomore North Texas sprinter Keyth Talley was selected the men's Sun Belt Conference Indoor Performer of the Week following another dominant performance over the weekend.
One week after setting a new school record in the 60-meter dash (6.69), Talley followed that up by tying the school record in the 200-meter dash (21.27) and taking first place this past weekend at the Texas Tech Invitational.
Talley's mark in the 200-meter dash is the best in the Sun Belt, 12th best in the nation and is currently the fifth best time in the world on an oversized track.
The Manor High School product also finished second in the 55-meter dash in a time of 6.30, that performance coming on the heels of the best time overall in the prelims (6.31).
Monday marked the fourth time in Talley's career that he has been awarded the SBC Performer of the Week and the second in the indoor season.
North Texas track and field will be back in action next week when they travel back to Lubbock, Texas for the Texas Tech Open on Feb. 6.
