T&F Head Coach Phil Olson to Appear on SportsTalk Live
June 11, 2013
Subscribers to Comcast Sports Network Houston can see Stephen F. Austin head track and field coach Phil Olson Wednesday evening on SportsTalk Live, beginning at 5 p.m. The show can be found on channel 639.
Olson will be on to recap the 2013 season, a year that will go down as one of the most dominant in school history. SFA recorded conference team titles in five of the six track and field disciplines, including the Ladyjacks second league Triple Crown in the past three seasons (cross country, indoor and outdoor track and field). In addition to the Ladyjacks' success, the SFA men recorded one of their most memorable seasons as well.
The 'Jacks swept the conference indoor and outdoor titles. Following the indoor season junior pole vaulter Colton Ross and senior thrower Jon Arthur qualified for the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships. Ross would go on to earn second-team All-America honors, while Arthur would see similar success during the outdoor season. Arthur, along with juniors Cass Brown-Stewart and Torin Crowder and sophomores Shawn Goff, Josh Taylor, Simba Walker-Williams and Madison Johnston qualified for the outdoor national meet.
Arthur and Johnston recorded second-team All-America honors in the shot put and javelin, respectively, while SFA's 1,600-meter relay team earned third-team All-America recognition. Brown-Stewart closed out the meet by earning first-team All-America honors in the 400-meter dash. Brown-Stewart's opening time in the 400 also qualified him for the US Championships later this month in Des Moines, Iowa.
