DES MOINES, Iowa – Seniors Shantia Moss and James Lemons II earned All-American honors to lead Georgia Tech on the final day of the 2008 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships at Drake Stadium.

Moss battled strong winds to cross the line third in the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 13.15 to earn her second career All-American honor in the outdoor hurdles event. Moss, who placed third at the 2008 NCAA Indoor Championships in the 60-meter hurdles, closes out her career as a four-time All-American.

Lemons, a native of Atlanta, Ga., finished fifth in the men’s triple jump with a mark of 54 feet, 1 ¼ inches to earn his first career outdoor All-American honor. Lemons concludes a tremendous senior season that includes All-American honors in both the indoor triple jump and long jump.

“James had a phenomenal day and just competed really well,” men’s head coach Grover Hinsdale said. “Coach Page has done a great job with James and I am just very proud of the both of them.”

The women closed the 2008 NCAA Championships with six points, while the men finished with four points.
