Azamati named USTFCCCA national athlete of the week

West Texas A&M’s Benjamin Azamti has been named the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) NCAA Division II Men’s National Athlete of the Week for a third time this season following his record breaking performance at the Lone Star Conference Outdoor Track & Field Championships last weekend.

The sophomore from Akim Oda, Ghana helped the Buffs secure their second straight Lone Star Conference outdoor title last weekend winning the 100 and 200-meters.  He ran a wind legal 9.96 in the prelims of the 100-meters to set a new meet record which is the second-fastest time in NCAA DII behind his own divisional record of 9.90.

Azamati returned for the finals of the 100 a day later winning the individual event in a windy 9.86 (+3.0) that is the fastest all-conditions time in DII history. His second title of the weekend came in the 200 where he clocked 20.52.
