COLORADO SPRINGS -- BYU senior Greg Flint has been named the Mountain West Conference Outdoor Track & Field Athlete of the Week after posting a season-best time in the 400-meter hurdles in last weekend's Clarence Robison Invitational.

"It's always a great honor for one of our athletes to win the player-of-the-week award," BYU head men's track & field coach Mark Robison said. "We're very pleased with Greg's performance this season. Not only does he have the fastest time in our region, he is also running a great leg on our 4x400-meter relay team. He's having a great season."

Flint, a native of Kaysville, Utah, won the 400-meter hurdles at the Robison Invitation in a time of 50.58, marking the seventh fastest time in the nation and the fastest overall time in the West Region.

Flint and the rest of the Cougars will be competing the BYU Invitational Friday and Saturday at the Clarence F. Robison Track & Field Complex.
