June 30, 2011 — Coral Gables — University of Miami All-American Ti’erra Brown has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Outdoor Track Performer of the Year.
Brown becomes the second Hurricane track student-athlete to earn the prestigious honor, joining former teammate Kristy Whyte, who earned the distinction in 2008.
“This is a great honor for Ti’erra,” said Director of Track and Field Amy Deem. “The ACC has many tremendous athletes, and for her to receive this award says a lot about her performance this outdoor season.”
Brown recently earned All-America honors in both the 100- and 400-meter hurdles at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, winning the national title in the 400-meter hurdles in 55.642 seconds. With the win, she became the sixth woman in Miami program history to win an NCAA outdoor national title.
The accolades were the sixth and seventh career All-America honors for the decorated senior, ranking her sixth in program history. Fifteen-time All-American Dominique Darden holds the Miami record.
Brown also clocked in at 12.94 seconds to win the 100-meter hurdles at the ACC Championships in April, giving the Hurricanes their first title in the event. She earned All-ACC honors in the event for the second time and also claimed All-ACC honors in the 400-meter hurdles.
