Trio Named All-MWC
May 17, 2010
LAS VEGAS - UNLV women's track and field had three individuals and both relay teams named to the All-Mountain West Conference team, the league announced on Monday following the 2010 MWC Outdoor Championships.
Representing the Rebels were Amanda Bingson, Chauncey David-Jacobs and Bailey Kuestermeyer, along with the 4x100 and 4x400 meter relay squads. The 400-meter relay team was comprised of David-Jacobs, Shahnel Woodley, Candise Maxwell and Emily Blok, while the 1,600-meter relay team was made up of Blok, David-Jacobs, Lindsay Roach and Kelsey Williamson. All-MWC selections are awarded to the top three finishers in each event.
Bingson won the hammer throw with a school-record toss of 210-2.00, the second-best mark in conference history and the first Rebel in program history to break the 210-foot barrier. Bingson, who is the first UNLV athlete to win a throwing event at a conference championship since 1989, garnered Women's Outstanding Performance honors as well.
David-Jacobs finished second in the 200 meters and Kuestermeyer added a third-place finish in the 10,000 meters. The two relay teams each finished second in their respective races, with the 1,600 relay holding off Utah to propel the Rebels into fifth-place overall, just a half point ahead of the Utes.
