Clemson’s ACC Championship History Clemson has a total of two ACC Outdoor Championships and four runner-up finishes. The Lady Tigers last won the event in 1999 under Ron Garner. That year, the Lady Tigers claimed four event championships: 4x100m relay, pole vault, shot put, discus throw. Jamine Moton won both the shot put and discus for Clemson. The Lady Tigers earned All-ACC honors in six other events, including Moton in the hammer throw.

The Lady Tigers’ most recent runner-up finish was in 2001, the first year under current head coach Marcia Noad. That year, Clemson took home 11 event titles. Moton won the shot put, discus, and hammer that season. Cydonie Mothersill claimed stake in four titles, winning the 100m, 200m, 4x100m, and 4x400m relay. She was named Most Valuable Performer at the meet, one of six times a Clemson student-athlete has earned ACC Outdoor MVP honors.

The others to be honored as ACC meet MVP outdoors were Kim Graham (1991-93), Nikki Sims (1995), and Jamine Moton (2002).
