CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Clemson javelin thrower Dylan Ahrens rang up his second career First Team All-ACC distinction after a third-place finish in the javelin Thursday at the 2019 ACC Outdoor Championships. The senior threw a personal best of 66.00m (216-6) on his third attempt of the day to propel him from 11th to third place. Ahrens entered the meet ranking 12th among all javelin throwers. With Thursday’s mark, the Matawan, New Jersey native remains fourth all-time in program history.
Ahrens gave Clemson its first six of 11 points on the day as senior long jumper Chris McBride placed fourth overall to earn Second Team All-ACC honors along with five points.
The Clemson men (11) concluded the day in fifth place behind Pitt (12), Notre Dame (12), Syracuse (15) and Virginia (34) with just three events scored.
