Clemson’s Scott Shaw To Compete At NCAA Cross Country Championships

Nov. 21, 2003

CLEMSON, SC – Clemson senior Scott Shaw will compete at the 2003 NCAA Men’s Cross Country Championships to be held on Monday, Nov. 24 in Cedar Falls and Waterloo, IA. The University of Northern Iowa is hosting this year’s 10K race, which is slated to begin at 11:00 AM Central/12:00 PM Eastern.

Clemson men’s cross country head coach Bob Pollock said, “As a senior, Scott Shaw has a great opportunity in closing his cross country career at Clemson by competing at the NCAA Championships. Shaw is making his second consecutive trip to the NCAA’s with experience and confidence, and with his sights set on earning All-America honors.”

Shaw advanced to the national meet after finishing as the runner-up at the Southeast Regional Championships contested at Lake Kristi in Greenville, NC. This was the East Syracuse, NY native’s second top-three finish at the region meet, and the third all-region accolade earned by Shaw. In 2002, he placed third at the Southeast Region Championships, then posted a 75th-place finish at the NCAA Championships. Shaw earned his first all-region honor in 2001, placing 20th at the region race. He is only the fourth Tiger to be named all-region at least three times. Kevin Hogan and Hans Koeleman were four-time all-region runners, while Martin Flynn earned the accolade thrice.

Shaw will compete to earn Clemson’s first All-America honors in cross country since the 1988 season in which Yekezkel Halifa and Dov Kremer earned the accolade with second and sixth-place finishes, respectively. He has a personal-best 10K time of 29:52.3 set last year at the Southeast Region Championships.
