April 18, 2022

Liberty University’s men’s and women’s squads swept the team titles at the 2022 ASUN Indoor Track & Field Championships at the Brant Tolsma Indoor Track at Liberty Indoor Track & Field Complex in February.

The men’s team dominated the competition, outdistancing runner-up Kennesaw State by 90 points (254-164) and earning 13 first-place finishes. The Flames picked up their fourth consecutive ASUN indoor title and their 25th straight indoor conference crown overall. Liberty has never lost a men’s indoor track & field conference meet at the NCAA Division I level.

The Lady Flames pulled out an eight-point victory (165.5-157.5) over Kennesaw State to earn their third championship in four all-time appearances. 

Second-year head coach Lance Bingham was voted ASUN Men’s and Women’s Coach of the Year. Quinten Clay (Most Valuable Male Performer) and Meredith Engle (Most Valuable Female Performer) swept the individual awards. Clay led all athletes with 28 points, with victories in the men’s long jump and triple jump and a runner-up finish in the high jump. Engle’s 23 points were the most of any female athlete as she captured first place in the pentathlon, second in the high jump, and fourth in the triple jump.
