By  | 

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M Track and Field's Bryce Deadmon earned SEC Co-Men's Runner of the Week, announced by the league office Tuesday afternoon.

"It's a great honor for Bryce [Deadmon]," said head coach Pat Henry. "He had the best two quarters [400m] of the night. It was exciting to see, and it will be even more exciting to see what else he's got in store for the rest of the season."

Deadmon won the 400 meters, clocked at 45.86, 1.21 seconds ahead of the field. His quarter-mile time ranks second in the country this season, just .01 seconds behind North Carolina A&T's Randolph Ross. Deadmon posted an impressive split in the 4x400m relay, registering 45.83 seconds, as the Aggie's mile relay recorded the fastest time in the SEC this season at 3:07.31.

The Aggies have their first road trip of the season, as they head to Lubbock, Texas for the two-day Texas Tech Invitational starting on Friday, January 31.
