SAN RAMON, Calif. - Junior sprinter Paul Doan of the University of California San Diego was named the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Men's Track Athlete of the Week for the week of April 3-9. The announcement was made Tuesday.
Doan had several impressive performances at the Pomona-Pitzer Invitational Saturday at Strehle Track. The San Diego native broke his own school record in the 100-meter dash with a time of 10.53, lowering his previous standard of 10.60 set at the Ross & Sharon Irwin Collegiate Scoring Meet on March 18. His record-setting time is an NCAA provisional mark and the top-time in the CCAA this season. He was the fastest collegian in the event, placing second overall.
In the 200 meters, Doan again finished as the fastest collegian, placing third overall with a time of 21.53. He also anchored the 4x100 relay that crossed the line in first-place with the second fastest time in school history (41.20).
This is the second CCAA weekly honor for Doan after receiving the award last season as a sophomore.
Next, several Tritons will compete in the 10000 meters at the Mt. SAC Relays this Thursday, April 13, at 6 p.m., with the rest at the Bryan Clay Invitational in Azusa, Thursday and Friday.
