Men's Track Program Reaps ACC Awards

Feb. 21, 2002

The Georgia Tech men’s indoor track and field program swept the Atlantic Coast Conference honors as voted by the league’s head coaches, who selected Grover Hinsdale as ACC Coach of the Year, Brendon Mahoney as ACC Performer of the Year, and Brian Ford as Rookie of the Year.

Hinsdale, in his ninth season as the Tech head coach, was named ACC Indoor Track and Field Coach of the Year for the first time after leading the Yellow Jackets to a third place finish at last weekend’s conference meet. Tech amassed 94 points, the highest point total in school history.

Mahoney, a junior from Cumming, Ga., won the ACC title in the 800-meters with a time of 1:51.99 while placing second in the mile run at 4:10.96. He was named all-ACC in both events for the fourth and fifth all-conference awards of his career. He was previously named ACC Rookie of the Year in 2000.

Ford, a freshman from Ashland, Va., was a member of Tech’s ACC champion 4×400 meter relay team that posted a time of 3:13.58. He also placed sixth in the 400 meters with a time of 48.69 after becoming the only freshman to reach the finals of the event.
