Tim Hall Honored by U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association

June 8, 2009

Clemson, SC – Tim Hall of the Tiger track & field program has been named the Southeast Region Men’s Assistant Coach-of-the-Year. The announcement was made Monday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). This is Hall’s second career honor from the USTFCCCA. He previously was named Women’s Assistant Coach-of-the-Year for sprints, hurdles, and relays for Charlotte in 2006.

Hall, who is in his first season with Clemson track & field, coached three qualifiers in the 100m dash and the men’s 4x100m relay that also qualified for this week’s NCAA Outdoor Championships. C.J. Spiller will all compete this weekend at the national meet.

Hall guided the men’s team to East Region crowns in both the 100m dash and 4x100m relay on May 30 in Greensboro, NC. Ford captured the 100m dash title, the third for a Clemson sprinter in the last three years, with a personal-best time of 10.04 seconds. Murdock also received All-East Region acclaim by virtue of his sixth-place finish. Murdock and Spiller earned at-large bids in the 100m dash for the final meet of the 2009 season, this weekend’s NCAA outdoor nationals.

He coached the 4x100m relay team to its first-ever East Region championship. The Tigers posted a school-record time of 38.78, the second-fastest time in the country among this week’s field of 18 relay teams.

Hall also led a successful men’s sprint showing at the ACC Championships in April. He guided Ford to his first-ever ACC outdoor championship in the 100m dash. Hall’s sprinters finished 1-2-3 at the league meet, with Spiller finishing runner-up and Guy placing third. Ford was ACC runner-up in the 200m dash as well.
