Feb. 22, 2001

Greensboro, N.C. – Clemson’s Jamine Moton has been honored as the 2001 ACC Indoor Track and Field Championships Most Valuable Performer after she helped lead the Clemson Women’s Indoor Track and Field team to a second place finish at the 2001 Atlantic Coast Conference Indoor Track and Field Championships this past weekend in Blacksburg, Va.

The University of North Carolina Tar Heels claimed their ninth consecutive ACC Indoor title as they won the championship with 144 points. Tar Heel head coach Dennis Craddock was named ACC Coach of the Year, Moton earned Most Valuable Performer and UNC’s Shalane Flanagan garnered Rookie of the Year honors. The above awards are voted on by the league’s nine head coaches.

Moton, a junior from Glassboro, N.J., was the ACC Champion in the shot put and weight throw. In the shot put, her throw of 52’05.25″ broke a 10-year-old ACC Indoor meet record of 51’04.25″ set by Virginia’s Kelly Bodiford in 1991. On the final day of competition, Moton posted a championship and NCAA automatic qualifying mark of 65’09.75″ in the weight throw. That mark broke the previous ACC Indoor weight throw record of 62’05.00″ set in 1998 by Florida State’s Lakeisha Mose.
