Barton College junior Micah Clemons, the 2019 Conference Carolinas Men’s Outdoor Field Athlete of the Year, parlayed a pair of conference championships in the hammer throw and discus into United States Track and Field & Cross-Country Coaches Association All-Southeast Region honors, it was announced Wednesday.
Clemons repeated as Conference Carolinas champion in the hammer throw and uncorked a league record toss of 147 feet, 10 inches in the discus — also a Barton record. He added his third all-region accolade in the shot put after a runner-up finish at the league meet and set a new school record in the hammer throw with an effort of 191-0.
Clemons recorded a total of five first-place finishes in the hammer throw this season, holds the Barton shot put record at 49-3 and owns the 31st best hammer throw in all of NCAA Division II.
The top five individuals in each event from each region earned USTFCCA All-Region awards.
