HOUSTON - With a conference championship under their belts, 16 University of Houston track & field student-athletes were selected to the All-American Athletic Conference Team following the inaugural conference outdoor championships in Tampa, Fla.
Athletes placing in the top three of each event at the conference championships were named to the all-conference team.
Senior Errol Nolan was the top athlete of the meet, earning four all-conference selections to go with his four gold medals. Nolan recorded the fastest times in the men’s 200-meter and 400-meter dashes to notch a first place win and the conference record in each event. He also helped the Cougar men’s team to 4x100m and 4x400m relay conference championships and sealed the overall team championship with his anchoring in the 4x400m relay.
Following the meet, Nolan was named the Male Track Most Outstanding Performer of the Meet.
