CSUF track and field athletes Corey Gilbert, Tyler Hardge, Alysse McMillen and Sam Schubert swept the final round of Big West Track and Field Athlete of the Week awards following their May 5 performances in the Titan Twilight.

Schubert set a new personal best in the 110-meter hurdles. He finished with a time of 14.41 seconds, trimming down his previous personal best of 14.62 seconds.

For this season, his new record ranks as the seventh-best time for 110-meter hurdles in the Big West conference.

Hardge took second place in the 400-meter hurdles and finished with a time of 61.89 seconds, which is the ninth-fastest finish this season in conference. Her best time is still 60.10 seconds, which she set at the CSUN Challenge on May 2, 2015.

Field athletes Gilbert and McMillen set new personal bests during the competition.

Gilbert heaved new personal and team bests in the discus toss of 56.09 meters. However, he fell short of achieving first place by 3.12 meters.

He also held the previous team record after throwing 54.45 meters on March 24.

The distance still placed Gilbert as No.17 in the NCAA Division 1 West Region and second in the Big West top marks list.

McMillen’s clearance of 3.90 meters in pole vault was her best clearance this season, earning a first-place finish at the Titan Twilight. This height also gives McMillen a chance to contend for a medal at the Big West Conference Track & Field Championship this weekend.

The final days of the Big West championship will take place on May 11 and May 12.
