Terry Robinson, who earlier this month was named as the Great Lakes Valley Conference’s top track athlete for the 2010 outdoor season, has gained another significant honor as he has been selected as the Midwest Region’s “Track Athlete of the Year” by the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.


Robinson had a hand in four winning events for the Miners at the GLVC Outdoor Championships held at Missouri S&T in early May, winning the 110-meter hurdles and 400-meter hurdles on an individual basis and anchoring two winning relay teams.


The sophomore from St. Louis, Mo. (McCluer South-Berkeley), is currently ranked fourth in the 400-meter hurdles, one of two events he will compete in at this week’s NCAA Division II Championships in Charlotte, N.C. He posted a top time of 52.16 seconds in the event at the LSU Relays and will compete in the preliminary round of the 400-hurdles Thursday evening.


Robinson will also run in the 4x400-meter relay with teammates Bryan Kluge, Brendan Smith and Brandon Etzold – the preliminary round is slated for Friday – where the Miners have the nation’s ninth-best mark of the season at 3:12.12 which was recorded at the Drake Relays.


During the 2010 outdoor season, Robinson also had a time of 14.49 seconds in the 110-meter hurdles, which also ranked among the top 20 nationally.

Robinson earned All-America honors in the 60-meter hurdles during the 2010 indoor campaign with a fifth-place finish.
