Georgia Tech Track’s Greenwald Earns ACC Honor
Chesapeake, Va., senior broke school record in 3000m over weekend
GREENSBORO, N.C. – Georgia Tech track & field senior Jeremy Greenwald was honored Tuesday by the Atlantic Coast Conference as the conference’s Men’s Track Co-Performer of the Week. He shares the honor with Syracuse hurdler Freddie Crittenden III.
A native of Chesapeake, Va., Greenwald broke the indoor school record in the 3000m on Saturday, Jan. 16, at the Vanderbilt Commodore Invitational in Nashville, running a time of 8:03.13. His time is also good for second nationally this season.
Greenwald also holds the school record in the distance medley relay along with Brandon Lasater, Alexander Reese and Zack Fanelty. He was an honorable-mention All-American as a sophomore in the outdoor 1500m and was second-team All-ACC in the outdoor 1500m as a junior.
“We are all very proud of Jeremy for receiving and earning this great honor,” head men’s coach Grover Hinsdale said. “He ran a very tough and hard-fought race. Coach (Alan) Drosky has done an excellent job of bringing Jeremy along through some tough physical issues throughout the late fall, and they have been rewarded with a 3000m school record in the middle of January. We are anticipating continued great things from Jeremy throughout this indoor season.”
The Jackets will continue the 2016 season Friday and Saturday at the Auburn Conference Clash in Birmingham, Ala.
