Tech's Chaunte Howard Earns ACC MVP Honors

May. 3, 2005

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Georgia Tech standout Chaunte Howard was tabbed outdoor Atlantic Coast Conference Female Track and Field Most Valuable Performer on Tuesday morning, announced by the league office. Howard earns the honor for the second consecutive outdoor season.

Howard, a junior from Riverside, Calif., scored 27 points and posted the top mark in the World in the high jump to help lead the Yellow Jackets to a third-place finish at the outdoor ACC Championships in Tallahassee, Fla. She cleared the bar at 6 feet, 4 3/4 inches, to win her 26th consecutive collegiate high jump competition.

Howard’s weekend also saw her take second in the long jump with a mark of 20 feet, 3 1/2 inches, fifth in the triple jump at 42 feet, 7 inches, and placed fourth in the 100 meters, although it was only contested for 90 meters since the race started at the wrong line. Howard also competed in the 100-meter high hurdles, clocking a time of 13.90 in the preliminaries.

The men’s and women’s track and field teams will compete in the Orange & Purple Classic this Saturday, May 7, in Clemson, S.C.
