In total, Lindsey Wilson athletes won four events and were runners-up in five more - racking up 12 total All Mid-South Conference accolades.

Dequan Robinson received both MSC Freshman and Athlete of the Year honors at the event.

Robinson won one individual event on Saturday and placed in the top three in two others. The Lexington, Kentucky native took first place in the 200-meter dash with a time of 21.77 seconds, improving on his "A" standard time and setting the school indoor record in the process.

In addition, Robinson was runner-up in the 60-meter dash and placed third in the 400 meter.

Three other Blue Raiders collected First Team All-MSC honors by placing first in their respective events.

Kevin Hallmon set the program record en route to a first-place finish in the 60-meter dash. The sophomore recorded a time of 6.95 in the preliminaries before running a 6.79 in the finals. Hallmon also placed second in the 200 meter, meeting the "A" standard with a time of 21.86.

Anthony Thompson won the triple jump with a mark of 14.02 meters and finished as the runner-up in the long jump.

Caleb Watson finished in second in the 1,000-meter run, completing the event with a time of two minutes and 39.70 seconds.

The members of the 4x800-meter relay team also received Second Team All-Conference honors. The grouping of Cameron Galloway, Trajon Hall, Ben Hoffman and Watson completed the relay in 8:09.50.

Dakotah Dunn placed third in both the shot put and weight throw. Dunn hurled his weight 14.05 meters and cleared 13.01 meters in the shot put.

Andrew Hedgespeth and Myles Davis placed behind Dunn in the shot put, finishing in fourth and fifth place, respectively.

Holt Keeling finished in the top-five in three separate events - the 60-meter dash, the 200-meter dash and the long jump.

Keeling placed third behind a duo of Blue Raiders in both the 60 meter and long jump and turned in a fourth-place finish in the 200 meter.

A trio of Lindsey Wilson athletes finished in the top six in the 600-meter race. Austin Sparrow placed third with a time of 1:28.68. Quanterrial Parmes and Galloway finished back-to-back in fifth and sixth place, respectively.
