LONG BEACH - Long Beach State had 21 athletes produce 28 all-conference performances at the 2012 Big West Track & Field Championships last weekend. The top three finishers in each event earn All-Big West honors.
Senior Christopher Lawson led the way as he took home All-Big West accolades in four different events. He was the conference champion in the 400-meter hurdles, finished second in the 110m hurdles, anchored the 4x400 relay team that placed second and ran the second leg on the third-place 4x100 relay squad.
Senior Jacob Weintraub was the 49ers' top field performer, winning the discus and securing runner-up honors in the shot put.
Freshman Jahmani Lockett finished ahead of the pack in the 400m and earned all-conference recognition in the 4x400 relay.
Freshman Cameron Glasgow also earned multiple honors as he placed second in the 200m and was part of the 4x100 relay team.
Senior Ben Woodruff defended his conference title in the javelin.
Also earning all-conference recognition in individual events were freshman Jacob Fraser (Discus, 2nd), senior Manny Neizer (Triple Jump, 2nd), sophomores Dillon Fox (Decathlon, 3rd) and Koree Hines (110H, 3rd), and junior Michael Vaughan (Triple Jump, 3rd).
On the women's side, freshman Emily Cooper was the only multiple award winner as she finished third in both the 100m and 200m.
Senior Jessica Barnard established a school and meet record to claim the Big West title in the 3000m Steeplechase.
