IRVING, Texas -
Bryce Robinson of Tulsa and UCF's Aurieyall Scott clocked a pair of NCAA-leading times at the Frank Sevigne Invitational last weekend to earn Conference USA Indoor Track and Field Athletes of the Week honors for the first time this season.
Robinson matched the nation's fastest time of 6.61 in the men's 60-meter dash. The freshman also established a school record in the 200m where he clocked a 21.32, which is the 38th-fastest time on the Track & Field Results Reporting System's (TFRRS).
Scott's time of 23.14 in the 200m is the NCAA's new leading time and ranks second in the world this year. All three of her 200m performances have ranked among the NCAA's top 10. She is the only athlete to boast two times that appear among the world's top five in 2012-13.

Robinson set school records in the 60m and 200m dashes at the 38th annual Frank Sevigne Invitational last weekend. He matched the nation's fastest time of 6.61 in the qualifying round of the 60m. This is the second time Robinson has broken the school's 60m record, as he did so in his first meet as a Golden Hurricane when he ran a 6.71 at the Kansas State Invitational. The freshman also established a program-best time of 21.32 in the 200m, which ranks as the 38th fastest in the TFRRS. That time placed him fifth in the prelims. He ended the weekend by running the third leg of the 4x400 relay team that finished fourth with a time of 3:15.46. This is his first C-USA Indoor Track and Field Athlete of the Week honor.
