Columbia, S.C. – The United States Track Coaches Association bestowed honors upon two USC athletes as Jonathan Fortenberry and Otukile Lekote were named co-Southeast Region Athletes of the Year by the organization.

Fortenberry finished second in the 400 meter dash and Lekote placed second in the 800 meter run at the 2003 SEC Indoor Championships. The duo helped the Gamecocks capture the SEC title in 4×400 relay, anchored by Fortenberry.

Both athletes are among 15 Gamecocks competing at this weekend’s NCAA Indoor Championships in Fayettville, Ark, beginning Friday.
