Smith, Davis on All-CAC team

YORK, Pa. – The Frostburg State tandem of senior Christian Smith and junior Trey Davis have been named to the 2013 All-Capital Athletic Conference Men's Track & Field Team, as announced by the league office on Wednesday morning.

Davis was named to the All-CAC First Team after winning the gold medal in the hammer throw at the CAC Championships last weekend. He bested Matt Cronin of Mary Washington by nearly three meters to win the event at 44.69 meters. The toss was a career best for Davis who has earned a win in the hammer in two of the last three meets.

Smith garnered second-team honors after finishing second in the shot put with a toss of 13.94 meters. It was his second-straight all-conference honor after finishing second in the shot put at last year's CAC Championships.
