NEW ORLEANS, La. – A trio of Manchester University track & field athletes have garnered All-Great Lakes Region accolades from the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) following outstanding performances during the 2022 outdoor track & field season.

On the men's side, both Enrique Salazar (Plymouth) and Ben Villafuerte (Angola) picked up All-Great Lakes Region recognition this spring. Salazar took home all-region honors in the 10,000m. His top time of 29:46.52 in the event, set at the WashU (Mo.) Distance Carnival, was a new school record and punched him a ticket to the 2022 NCAA Division III Outdoor National Championships. Salazar was also the 2022 Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Men's Distance Runner of the Year.

Villafuerte earned All-Great Lakes Region honors in the shot put this spring. Villafuerte's top mark of 15.53m (50' 11 1/2"), set at the Mount Union Last Chance Meet, was a new career-best and vaulted him to 2nd all-time on the Manchester Top 10 listings. The junior also helped play an integral role in guiding the Spartans to a pair of HCAC championships this year.

On the women's side, first-year Carley Camp (Logansport) concluded her outstanding rookie campaign with All-Great Lakes Region recognition in the shot put. Camp's top mark in the event came at the 2022 HCAC Championships. Her distance of 13.55m (44' 5 1/2") set a new Manchester University record while also qualifying her for the 2022 NCAA Division III Outdoor National Championships. Camp helped guide the Spartans to a pair of HCAC crowns in 2022.
