Crawford Earns Qualification In 100 Meters

April 12, 2000

CLEMSON, S.C. – Shawn Crawford, who had already qualified for this year’s NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in the 200-meter dash, ran 10.18 in the 100-meter dash Saturday at the Duke Invitational to receive his second automatic qualification to the meet, which will be held May 31 through June 3 at Duke University.

Crawford advanced to the finals after coasting with a 10.45 clocking in the preliminaries. He finished fourth in the finals but was the top collegian, recording a 10.18 behind Kenny Brokenburr, Tony McCall and Tim Montgomery, all competing unattached.

Todd Matthews was the second collegiate finisher in the 110-meter high hurdles. He finished fifth in the event in a time of 14.02. The only collegian finishing ahead of him was Syracuse’s Adrian Woodley, who turned in a 13.82. Ato Modibo was 14th in the 400-meter dash with an effort of 47.45. Fred Sharpe was 10th in the 400-meter hurdles with a time of 51.98. Tony Washington was 24th in a time of 53.65.

The Tigers also had their best showing of the season in the 5,000-meter run. Jason Meany finished 14th in a time of 14:24.32 while teammate Ryan Demars was 19th in a time of 14:34.74. Clemson’s distance medley relay team finished 14th.

In the field events, Malcolm Reynolds and Doug Ameigh both cleared 6-7 in the high jump. Brian Williams had clearance of 6-3 1/4. Kai Maull leapt a wind-aided 24-0 1/4 in the long jump to finish sixth, while Mark Jellison had a legal leap of 23-0 3/4 to finish 14th. Andy Giesler was fifth in the pole vault with a clearance of 14-11. Tony Lloyd skipped 46-4 3/4 in the triple jump to finish 11th. Keith Rzewuski launched the hammer 163-5 (15th) and Andy Giesler threw the javelin 161-6 (29th).

ELDER PROVISIONALLY QUALIFIES IN 100-METER HURDLES

Clemson’s only provisional qualifier in women’s competition at Duke was Keke Elder in the 100-meter hurdles. She finished sixth just .01 seconds off her season best time of 13.59 after qualifying with a 13.70 in a fourth-place finish in heat one.

In other women’s action, the 4×100-meter relay finished with a season-best time of 45.81. Kammie Blount finished fourth in the javelin with a heave of 138-2. Elder was third in the 100-meter dash preliminaries with a time of 12.03 but did not advance to finals. Marcia Smith finished fourth in heat two of the 200-meter dash with a wind-aided time of 24.36, which was a season best. Beth Ahern finished 10th in the 3,000-meter run with a season-best time of 9:48.

WESTON NAMED NSCA ALL-AMERICAN

Shekera Weston was named a 2000 All-American by the National Strength and Conditioning Association. Weston is redshirting this season, but the senior sprinter from Ft. Campbell, KY is a six-time ACC champion and five-time All-American. She was nominated for the honor by Clemson Strength and Conditioning Coach Joey Batson.
