Jeshua Anderson named Pac-10 Newcomer of the Year

Jeshua Anderson (left/photo courtesy WSU Sports Information) was named the Pacific-10 Conference Track & Field Men's Newcomer of the Year by a vote of the conference track and field coaches, the conference office announced Monday.

Anderson, from Woodland Hills, Calif., became just the second Cougar to capture the men's 400m hurdles title at the Pac-10 Championships, running a time of 49.55 seconds. He went on to win both the NCAA West Regional title and the NCAA Championship crown in a school-record time of 48.69, the seventh-best time in Pac-10 history. It's the fifth-best time by an American this season and met the U.S. Olympic Trials "A" standard. Anderson won the USA Junior Championships intermediate hurdles title last Saturday in Columbus, Ohio, and will compete this weekend at the US Olympic Team Trials-Track & Field in Eugene, Ore., running the quarterfinals Friday night.
