It’s the first time in his career he has received the honor and the sixth straight week a Coyote has received the honor.

 

Lewin set the league’s new top times in the 110-meter hurdles and the 200, finishing the events in 14.19 seconds and 21.29 respectively. He also helped the 4×100 relay to a win with a time of 41.55. He currently ranks 38th in the NCAA West Region in the 110 hurdles.
