ATLANTA – Shantia Moss and Ashlee Kidd of the No. 14 Georgia Tech women’s track and field team each garnered All-America honors for their performances at the 2007 NCAA Indoor Championships, announced by the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Tuesday.
Moss, a junior from Tamarac, Fla., won the National Championship in the 60-meter hurdles with a personal- and school-best time of 7.98. Moss becomes only the third Georgia Tech women’s track and field athlete to win a national title. She also earns her first All-America nod at Tech.
Kidd, a senior from St. Petersburg, Fla., placed third in the 400-meter dash with a personal- and school-record time of 51.96 at the championship meet. Kidd was named an All-America for the seventh time in her career at Tech.
The two athletes combined for 16 points and a 14th-place finish at the NCAA Indoors giving the women’s team its third-best finish all-time and second-best point total at the national indoor meet. The Jackets tied for 13th place with 13 points in 1999 and tied for seventh with 18 points at the 1992.
The Jackets will kick off their 2007 outdoor season on Friday and Saturday, March 23-24 at the Wake Forest Open in Winston-Salem, N.C.
