CLEMSON, S.C. - University of Maryland junior Dominic Berger defended his individual title in the men's 60-meter hurdles on Saturday to highlight Terrapin efforts at the 2006 Atlantic Coast Conference Indoor Track and Field Championships being held at Clemson's Rock Norman Track.

In the team standings, the Maryland men placed ninth with 37 points, while the women were 12th with 16.

Berger won the event in 7.75 seconds, his best time of the season and the fifth-fastest in the NCAA so far this year. Lance Leggett of Miami was just behind at 7.79, while Adam Durham of Maryland finished sixth to earn team points with his clocking of 8.14.

Also for Maryland on Saturday, junior Toni Aluko added more points for the Terrapin women and earned her first All-ACC designation with her third-place finish in the women's high jump. Aluko cleared 5 feet, 8 inches and picked up her All-ACC honor by virtue of the top-three finish. Viktoria Andonova of Miami won the event at 5-11.50.

Sean Lowe also earned All-ACC honors with his third-place finish in the men's 400 meters. Lowe finished in 48.26 to earn six team points for the Terps and gain his first All-ACC award. Freshman Jeremy Samuels also scored for the Maryland men with a seventh-place finish of 49.23 in the 400.

Maryland also finished second in the men's 4x400 relay in 3:15.45. The Terrapins won their heat, but had a slower time than North Carolina, which won the second heat in 3:15.00.

Jillian Anwah picked up points for Maryland in the women's shot put, placing sixth at 47-9.25. Kylynn McKinley earned a season-best in the women's 3,000 meters of 10:38.53.
