Rams’ Mostafa Hassan named MW Men’s Indoor Track & Field Student-Athlete of the Year

March 16, 2017

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Fresh off Colorado State’s first individual national championship in over a decade, Mostafa Hassan has been named the Mountain West Men’s Indoor Track & Field Student-Athlete of the Year. The conference announced its post-indoor season awards on Thursday.

One men’s and women’s student-athlete of the year is selected at the end of each season by the league’s head coaches. This marks the second postseason award Hassan has received from the conference, as he was named MW Men’s Co-Student-Athlete of the Year following the 2016 outdoor season.

The Cairo, Egypt native finished off a historic season at the NCAA Division I Indoor Track & Field Championships, hurling the shot put 69-9.5 (21.17m) to win the Rams’ first individual national title since 2005 (Loree Smith – hammer) and the program’s first in the shot put. Hassan is now a three-time First Team All-American, as he picked up his second indoor honor to go along with his outdoor All-America accolade.

In addition to his national title, Hassan hurled the shot put 69-10.75 to win the MW indoor title for the second year in a row (third including outdoor) and shatter the previous MW record (66-10 by Jim Roberts of BYU in 2001). With that mark, Hassan is ranked 10th in NCAA history in the shot put as well as fourth in the world this season.

Hassan has also been named to the watch list for collegiate track & field’s highest honor, The Bowerman Award. Hassan is the first athlete in program history – men’s or women’s - to be named to the Watch List for The Bowerman Award. Hassan is the only thrower on the most recent watch list.

The Colorado State track & field team will look to build upon its highest indoor national finish (No. 12) on the men’s side as it begins its outdoor season next weekend. The Rams are slated to open the outdoor season at the friendly confines of Jack Christiansen Track with the Fum McGraw Invitational on Saturday, March 25.
