Tech's Andrea King Makes ACC Track History by Winning 100 & 200 Meters and 100 Hurdles at Outdoor Championships

CLEMSON, S.C. (April 17) — Georgia Tech track and field standout Andria King (Atlanta, Ga.) made Atlantic Coast Conference history Saturday by becoming the first athlete to win the 100 meter dash, 200 meter dash and 100 hurdles in the same championship meet. She won the 100 meters in 11.26, the 200 meters in 22.90 and 100 hurdles in 12.98 seconds.

King helped Tech to a sixth place finish in the team standings with 85 points, while the men’s team was seventh with 55 points. North Carolina took the men’s championship with 178 points, while Clemson broke North Carolina’s seven-year reign in the women’s meet with a first place total of 142.5 points.

King set Georgia Tech institute records in 100 hurdles and 200 meters, and established a new ACC mark in the 100 hurdles. She has already automatically qualified for the NCAA Championship in both events earlier this year.

Tech senior Jonas Montiejunas (Phoenix, Ariz.) captured the only first place among the Yellow Jacket men’s competitors as he won the 800 meters in a time of 1:50.05. Junior Becky Megesi (Jonesboro, Ga.) won the 1,500 meters for a second consecutive season with a time of 4:25.86 and she was second in the 800 meters in 2:15.41.

Also winning All-ACC honors for finishing first or second was senior Malcolm Leason (Wilmington, Del.), who was second in the triple jump with a mark of 51-0 and the men’s 4×400 relay team was second in a time of 3:10.83.
