Azamati Benjamin Named Male Track Athlete of the year in America


Ghanaian Akyem Oda Born Sprinter and West Texas A&M’s Benjamin Azamati was named the Lone Star Conference Male Outdoor Track & Field Athlete of the year, following the league’s announcement on Wednesday morning.  The postseason honors were voted on by the conference’s head coaches.

Azamati becomes the first Buff in program history to earn the postseason recognition twice as the LSC 100- and 200-meter champion earns the top track honors for the second straight year.

He broke the NCAA DII 100m record and Ghana national record in his first race of the season running 9.90 at the Texas Relays. He now has the top seven times in NCAA DII history in the event.  His record breaking performance in Austin marks the fifth-fastest time in all-collegiate history.

He was equally impressive in the 200m as he matched his own NCAA DII record in that event at Jo Meaker Classic in Canyon after running 20.13. He also ran the anchor leg on the 4×100-meter relay that claimed the program’s first national title in either relay event with the fastest time in program history at 39.27.
