March 11, 2000

FAYETTEVILLE, AR-The Clemson men’s track and field team placed 10th with 16 points at the 2000 NCAA Indoor Championships in Fayetteville, AR. Arkansas won the meet with 69.50 points.

In the final day of competition, senior Shawn Crawford finished fourth with a time of 6.67 in the 60m dash, earning his second All-America citation of the meet. On Friday, Crawford won the national championship in the 200m, setting an American record at 20.26.

“It was a nice race,” said Crawford of the 60m dash. “There was high quality competition, and whoever is best on this day will win. I’m just happy to be at the national championships.”

“Shawn has given everything that I have ever asked of him,” said Clemson head coach Bob Pollock. “I’m a little disappointed with the 60m, but after last night’s performance in the 200m, how can you complain?”

The Tiger 4x400m relay team of Charles Allen, Otto Spain, Crawford and Jacey Harper placed 10th with a time of 3:11.52 to conclude the meet.

Clemson will open the outdoor season next weekend at the Clemson Relays.
