Cal Poly’s Phillip Reid and Lisa Modglin were named the school’s respective Athletes of the Year late Tuesday night.

The announcement was made at the annual Night of the Mustang awards banquet at the Embassy Suites Hotel in San Luis Obispo.

Reid, a junior distance runner for the men’s cross country and track and field teams, finished 21st nationally in cross country and Saturday broke a 29-year-old Big West Championships record in the 1,500-meter run in 3 minutes, 42.54 seconds. He is now qualified for the 2008 U.S. Olympic Trials.

Modglin, a senior center fielder for the softball team, led the Big West Conference in several offensive categories during the regular season, including batting average (.488), home runs (16), RBI (44), hits (80), triples (7), total bases (156), intentional walks (8), slugging (.951) and on-base percentage (.590).
