LUBBOCK, Texas – Antoine Andrews, the 2022 U20 World Champion in the 110m hurdles has signed on to join Texas Tech. He is set to join the Red Raiders in the upcoming 2023 indoor season.
“I’m so excited to get the World Champion 110 hurdler!” said head coach Wes Kittley. “Coach (Zach) Glavash did a wonderful job recruiting him and creating the relationship with him and his family. What a great signee for the men’s program!”
The 19-year-old hails from Nassau, Bahamas and captured the U20 gold medal with a personal best time of 13.23 (+0.2), this past August in Cali, Colombia. In the process, it was the U20 world leading time and set a national junior record for the Bahamas.
“Antoine brings great ability to an already established hurdle squad,” said assistant coach of sprints and hurdles Zach Glavash. “He has next level talent, coupled with work ethic and hunger. It’s worth noting that our team success, facilities, and coaching staff have inked two of the top three hurdlers in the world in the last couple of years.”
Last summer, Tech landed the 2021 U20 silver medalist in the 110m hurdles, Vashaun Vascianna. As a freshman last year, Vascianna captured the Big 12 Indoor 60m hurdles title en route to being named the Most Outstanding Freshman. The Jamaican would go on to finish fourth at the NCAA Indoor meet.
