Saturday Individual Notes • Clemson won its eighth straight ACC track & field title Saturday, a four-year indoor/outdoor sweep • The Tiger seniors are the first class since the University of North Carolina seniors of 1998 to sweep the ACC Championships all four years in women’s track & field • Saturday’s margin of victory was five points, the slimmest margin by far in all of Clemson’s eight straight ACC titles • The Clemson women won seven events (of 21), the third straight ACC Outdoor Championships the Tigers have won at least seven

• The Tiger men notched their best finish at the ACC Outdoor Championships since 2008 with a third-place team finish • The women’s 4×100 relay won the ACC Championship a fourth straight season, the first school to accomplish the feat since the Clemson women of 1990-93 • Keni Harrison received ACC Most Valuable Track Performer honors for the first time in her career • Harrison is the third different Tiger female to win the honor the last three years, joining Stormy Kendrick in 2011 and Marlena Wesh in 2012 • Harrison broke the Clemson record in the 400 hurdles, running 56.58 in the final to knock Silja Ulfarsdottir’s 2005 time (56.62) off the top of the all-time list • Brianna Rollins and Spencer Adams both won their first-ever ACC outdoor hurdles titles; Adams’ win was the first by a Tiger in the 110 hurdles since Roy Cheney in 2003 • Rollins earned a rare double, winning the 200 dash as well; she is the first ACC female to win both at the same meet since North Carolina’s LaTosha Colander in 1997 • Tevin Hester was all-conference in both men’s short sprints; he is the first Tiger male to accomplish the feat since Jacoby Ford in 2009 • Marcus Maxey earned All-ACC acclaim in both hurdle events, the second straight year a Tiger has done that (Spencer Adams in 2012) • Brittney Waller scored 14 points and earned two all-conference honors at the meet; she concludes her career with seven All-ACC awards • Stormy Kendrick was ACC silver medalist in the 100 dash and champion with the 4×100 relay, giving her a final tally of 16 career all-conference accolades; that figure ranks third in Clemson history, behind only Hall of Famers Kim Graham and Jamine MotonNia Fluker earned her first individual All-ACC accolade with a bronze medal finish in the 400 dash

Quoteboard “You hope that you’re helping the team in any way possible. It really helped the discus went well for me Thursday, I wasn’t expecting to do that well. The 14 points help out; we don’t want it coming down to one or two points. We had a big team meeting last night, and we were all on the same page and comfortable for today.” – Brittney Waller

“(The 4×400) was a lot of pressure, but once I saw our crowd and saw my teammates cheering us on, it was like a shot of adrenaline. It is very rewarding to have that much on the line and come out on top.” – Brittany Pringley

“It’s a great feeling to win the ACC Outdoor Championship four years in a row. I’m just so blessed to be a part of a group of seniors who were able to win eight times in a row overall.” – Brianna Rollins

“I knew I was going to be in a lot of events, so I just did the best I could in each of them; I’m happy with the result. It was my first time ever running the 4×1, but I just did my part and was able to help out. The pressure (of the 4×4) was pretty high, but we train for this. I knew if we left it all out there, we’d end up on top.” – Keni Harrison

“It means a lot to start winning as a freshman and continue winning all four years. It’s amazing. We all had one goal, to start winning ACC Championships. I hope that once we’re gone, the legacy can be continued for many more years.” – Stormy Kendrick
