Sprinter Andre Ewers created history when he became the first Florida State University (FSU) sprinter to win back-to-back sprint doubles at the ACC Championships held at Lannigan Field in Charlottesville, Virginia from May 9-11.

Jamaican sprinter Andre Ewers destroyed the field to claim top spot in the men’s 200 dash at the Orange and Purple Elite meet on Friday.

The Jamaican powered to the line to stop the clock at 20.94, well clear second place compatriot and former Calabar High School standout Jermaine Brown who was second in 21.37.  Shannon Patterson was third in 21.41.  The mark was not only an early NCCA but world lead.

The start is a good one for the sprinter who was named to the prestigious Bowerman preseason watch list.  The Bowerman is collegiate track & field’s highest honour and has been awarded annually by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) since 2009.

Ewers finished the year ranked No. 7 in the world with outdoor season-bests of 9.98 in the 100-metre dash and 20.28 in the 200m.
