Cunningham Wins South Region Athlete of the Year

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Trey Cunningham picked up another award on Thursday afternoon, as he was named the Men’s South Region Track Athlete of the Year. Cunningham won the award in the indoor season but becomes just the third Seminole to win the award during the outdoor season joining Maurice Mitchell (2012) and Walter Dix (2007).

“This is a great honor for Trey and hopefully the first of many. To be named the best track athlete in a really good region is a big deal, and there is no one more deserving,” Head Coach Bob Braman said.

Cunningham put together one of the greatest seasons in NCAA hurdle history during his 2022 campaign. Cunningham went undefeated during his season that was capped off with a national title in the 110m hurdles. In the championship race, Cunningham ran 13.00, tied for the second-fastest race in NCAA history, to become one of four athletes to run 13.00 or faster. In his 10 races this season, Cunningham ran 13.22 or faster nine times which has never been done in NCAA history. The Winfield, Ala., native is now tied for 23rd all-time on the world list.

The USTFCCCA National Athlete of the Year will be announced tomorrow at noon.
