Malone Named ACC Men’s Track Rookie Athlete of the Year

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Freshman sprinter Ace Malone has been named the 2024 ACC men’s track rookie athlete of the year, the conference announced Thursday afternoon.

Malone had a remarkable opening year as a Hurricane, earning multiple conference honors and etching his name into the school record books multiple times this season.

At the 2024 ACC outdoor track and field championships, Malone clocked an impressive 46.08, the second fastest time in school history, for a fifth-place finish in the 400m. Also at the conference championships, Malone supported the men’s 4x400m to a school record time of 3:04.65, earning a bronze medal.

Malone also earned his first ACC weekly honors in the third week of March, when the Colorado Springs native was tabbed men’s rookie of the week after running 20.83 in the 200m at the Hurricane Invitational.
