2006-07 Men's Indoor Track & Field Season Recap

The 2006-07 season marked a return to success for the Emory University Men's Indoor Track and Field team.  After finishing towards the bottom of the conference in 2005 and 2006, the Eagles took second place at the 2007 University Athletic Association (UAA) Indoor Championships, and were represented at the 2007 NCAA National Championship Meet.

The second place finish at the annual conference meet marks the ninth time in school history that Emory has taken one of the top-two slots at the UAA Indoor Championships.  It was also the best finish by an Emory team since the Eagles won the UAA Championship during the 2004 season. For the team's vast improvement, Emory's coaching staff, comprised of head coach John Curtin and assistant coaches Carl Leivers, Glenn Arnold, Kenny Cox and Pedro Vasquez, took home the conference's Coaching Staff of the Year award.
 
Emory was led throughout the season by senior Rob Leventhal, who was named the UAA's Most Outstanding Performer after becoming the only multiple-event winner at the meet.  Leventhal recorded an indoor school-record time of 4:11.66 in the mile run during the season, qualifying for the NCAA National Championships.  During the season, the senior recorded the three best times in the mile run in school history, and two of the school's top-four times in the 800-meter run.

Emory also added a number of new faces to the roster, who ended up making a positive impact on the team.  Freshman Tyler Faits was named the UAA's Rookie of the Year after taking first place in the 400-meter dash and claiming second in the 200-meter dash.  During the season, Faits recorded two of the top-six times in school history in the 400-meter dash.  Meanwhile, junior Frederick Linton took conference-champion honors in the 200-meter dash, finishing first with time of 22.54 seconds, the third-fastest time in school history.  Freshman Alex Greenhouse finished Emory's clean-sweep of the UAA 200-meter dash, finishing third in the event.
