EDWARD D. "ED" MCCREARY
Men's Indoor Track and Field (1977-80)
Men's Outdoor Track and Field (1977-80)
The fastest man in University of Delaware track and field history, Ed McCreary was a record-setting sprinter during his four-year career with the Blue Hen indoor and outdoor teams. A native of Wilmington, Del., Ed held nine indoor and outdoor school records at one point in his career and still holds the Delaware outdoor record in four events, including the 100 meters (10.33), 200 meters (21.00), and sprint medley relay (3:25.6), all set during the 1980 season. He won four East Coast Conference sprint titles during his career, capturing the 100 meters in 1978, the 200 meters in 1980, and the 400 meter relay in 1978 and 1980. He served as a co-captain for both teams and led the UD outdoor team to three straight ECC team titles in 1978-80. A 1980 Delaware graduate, he is the only sprinter in UD history to qualify for the NCAA Outdoor Championships when he competed in the 100 and 200 meter events in 1980 at the University of Texas.
