Shawn Crawford Named ACC Most Valuable Performer

April 27, 2000

GREENSBORO, NC – Clemson’s Shawn Crawford was named the Most Valuable Performer for his performance at the 2000 Atlantic Coast Conference Outdoor Track & Field Championships last weekend at Duke University’s Wallace Wade Stadium.

Crawford, a senior from Van Wyck, SC, earned MVP honors after winning both the 100m and 200m and running the second leg of Clemson’s 4x100m relay that also posted a victory. His time in the 200m was the second fastest time of the outdoor season. He is automatically qualified for both events at the NCAA Championships May 31-June 3 at Duke.

The award marks the second time he has received the award after the outdoor championships. Crawford is a four-time ACC MVP though, earning top athletic honors at the 1999 and 2000 meets.

Florida State’s Tonya Carter was named the Most Valuable Performer for the women, while Georgia Tech’s Brendon Mahoney and North Carolina’s Jill Pedretti were named ACC freshmen of the year. Florida State skipper Terry Long was named the Coach of the Year for both men and women. Clemson is participating at this week’s Penn Relays at Franklin Field in Philadelphia, PA.
