Lancer named province’s top track and field athlete

Ontario University Athletics named Lancer distance runner Alex Ullman its outstanding male performer in track and field after the second-year distance runner helped lead Windsor to the provincial team title.

Ullman, a liberal arts and professional studies major, won gold medals in the 600m and 1000m events at last weekend’s OUA championship meet, anchored the men’s 4x400m relay team to another gold medal in a record time of 3:17.24, and earned silver as part of the 4x800m relay squad.

As winner of the Hec Phillips Trophy, Ullman will become the OUA nominee for Canadian Interuniversity Sport male track athlete of the year, announced at the national meet in Edmonton, March 6 to 8.

Lancer head coach Dennis Fairall received the Bob Vigars award for OUA men’s coach of the year in track and field, the eighth time he has received the honour.
