Dalton Stidham has been named the Lone Star Conference Track & Field Athlete of the Week after his performance at the Texas Tech Matador Qualifier.

Stidham set a new school record previously held by him for the third time this season. The junior from Boyd placed third in the 60-meter hurdles with an NCAA provisional mark 8.00 seconds. Stidham topped his 14-day 8.10 record that he posted at the Texas Tech Open earlier this month.

Stidham and Tarleton's Indoor Track & Field team will compete in the Lone Star Conference Indoor Track and Field Championships this Saturday and Sunday in Lubbock.
