Cunningham Picks Up “Outstanding Performer” Award for Track and Field

NEW ORLEANS, La. – The United States Track and Field and Cross Country coaches Association (USTFCCCA) has awarded McMurry University senior Kevin Cunningham the “Outstanding Performer Award” for running events at the 2012 NCAA Division III Men’s Outdoor Track and Field Championships, it has been announced.

The award is based on a scale, which considers points scored for your team at the Championships, as well as assigning values for meet/venue records and top performance times. Cunningham won both the 400-meter hurdles and the 400 dash in leading the War Hawks’ team to the NCAA III men’s title. Cunningham also had the nation’s top qualifying times in both events.

Cunningham earned the USTFCCA’s South/South Region “Athlete of the Year” award for a second-consecutive time in 2012, as well. In all, Cunningham earned a total of 11 All-America awards – and four national championships – during his career in the Maroon & Black.

“Kevin is a very special young man,” McM head coach Barbara Crousen said. “His gifts as an athlete are well-documented. But he was also a team leader; the heart-and-soul of our team who led by example.

“This award is a testament to all that Kevin meant to our program and couldn’t have gone to a more deserving person.”
