Cook And Sanchez ’16 Selected To Landmark Men’s Outdoor Track & Field All-Decade Team

KINGS POINT, N.Y. (May 26, 2017) – The Landmark Conference announced late last month the league's All-Decade Team for men's outdoor track & field and two former USMMA standouts represent the Academy on the prestigious list – Christopher Cook and Tomas Sanchez '16. The All-Decade Team was selected by the current Landmark Conference head track & field coaches.
 
At the 2012 Landmark Championships, Cook captured gold medals for the Mariners in the 100m, the 200m and the long jump. He was a three-time Individual Conference Champion and earned three First Team All-Landmark honors for those three events. He holds the Academy's two long jump records with a leap of 6.82m in Indoor Season and 7.09m in Outdoor. The Ventura, Calif., native also holds one Landmark Conference Outdoor record as part of the 4x400m relay team that finished in 3:18.83 in 2012.
 
This is Sanchez's second Landmark All-Decade selection as he earned a spot on the Men's Indoor Track & Field All-Decade Team, which was announced back during the winter season. The Manati, P.R., native was a three-time Outdoor First Team All-Conference selection. He won the 400m dash at both the 2012 and 2013 Landmark Championship Meets. He was a member of the champion 4x400m relay team in 2013, with a time of 3:24.30. Sanchez holds two Academy Records, the 500m Indoor record (1:05.52) and as part of the 4x800m relay team during the Outdoor season (7:55.2). He also holds two Landmark Outdoor relays records in the 4x400m (3:18.83) and the 4x800m (8:01.47).
