GREENSBORO, North Carolina – The Atlantic Coast Conference recognized Desmond Palmer as the Men's ACC Performer of the week (May 19) for his remarkable accomplishments at the IC4A Championships last weekend.
Only a freshman, Palmer was crowned the 400M hurdle champion in a new personal best time (51.50). He also led the 4x400 meter relay to a top-five finish in the finals, adding to the Panther's overall team score.
