NEW ORLEANS -- The United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association officially announced its 2019 outdoor All-Americans, and the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference boasts 27 individual honorees representing six member institutions.
S.C. State’s Demek Kemp was named to the second team for the men's 100-meter dash.
Kemp finished his collegiate career with a school-record tying time of 10.03 in the 100 meters at the 2019 NCAA Track and Field Championships earlier this month.
Despite not making the final, Kemp capped an incredible S.C. State track career by earning a trip to Austin and the NCAA Championships, becoming the second Bulldog performer in as many seasons for S.C. State coach Tim Langford’s squad to reach the milestone, following a 14-year drought by the Orangeburg program.
In all, 10 programs racked up double-digit first-team honorees -- including the North Carolina A&T State men with 10.
The MEAC led all non-Power 5 conferences with 20 first-team All-Americans.
