ACC Players of the Week

GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) - Clemson's Brianna Rollins and Brunson Miller have been named the final Atlantic Coast Conference Outdoor Track and Field Performers of the 2013 season.

Rollins was named the ACC Women's Performer of the Week after posting the NCAA's fastest wind-legal time in the 100-meter hurdles this season at last weekend's Georgia Tech Invitational. The Miami native ran a 12.68 into a stiff headwind (-1.5 meters per second) to set a George C. Griffin Track record and register the fourth-fastest time in the world this year behind only Dawn Harper's times of 12.60 and 12.62, and former Virginia Tech standout Queen Harrison's 12.64. Only  five student-athletes in NCAA history - Ginnie Powell, Priscilla Lopes, Harrison, Gail Devers and Nichole Denby -  have posted faster wind-legal times than Rollins' effort in last Friday's prelim.

Miller was named the ACC Men's Performer of the Week after registering a personal best time of 45.88 in the 400-meter dash to place first among all collegians at the Georgia Tech Invitational. The Murrells Inlet, S.C.,native posted the second-fastest time in the ACC this season and ranks 12th in the NCAA and sixth in the East Region.

ACC schools will make NCAA declarations over the next week and prepare for the East Region Preliminary Round, scheduled for May 23-25 in Greensboro, N.C.
