THE FLATS – Junior Julienne McKee was named the Atlantic Coast Conference Female Co-Performer of the Week, the league announced Tuesday. It marks the first ACC performer of the week award for McKee of the 2013 indoor and outdoor seasons.
Fresh off a first-team All-America performance at the Indoor NCAA Championships in the triple jump, Julienne McKee excelled in her other event – the long jump – at the Georgia Relays to open the 2013 outdoor season last weekend.
The Marietta, Ga. native, long jumped to a school record distance of 6.32m (20’09”) and won the event out of 29 competitors.
She broke her own school record that she set in 2012 at 6.29m (20’08”) and now holds three of the top five spots in Tech’s all-time long jump history.
McKee and the Yellow Jackets are back in action this weekend at the Alabama Relays in Tuscaloosa, Ala.
