CLEMSON, SC – Michaylin Golladay established a school record in the women’s 100 hurdles on Saturday at the Orange & Purple Classic, one day after receiving her undergraduate degree from Clemson. Zach Berg also produced a personal best in winning the men’s hammer throw, strengthening his hold on the school record in the event. In total, Clemson student-athletes combined to win 17 events on the final day at the school’s last home meet of the 2010 season.

Golladay’s brilliant run was not enough to earn the victory, with Virginia Tech All-American Kristi Castlin taking first place. However, it did not dampen the spirits of the Upper Marlboro, MD native. Golladay’s previous legal-wind best had been 13.44.

Berg went well over his personal best in the hammer on Saturday. One day after participating in the commencement ceremonies for earning his degree in health science, the Tega Cay, SC native had a throw of 210’7″ on his first attempt of the final round on Saturday. Berg’s mark ranks among the best in the East Region.

The women’s 4x100m relay team of Michaylin Golladay, Stormy Kendrick, Kristine Scott and Jasmine Edgerson put together a winning time of 45.08 on Saturday, despite swirling wind conditions during the running of the event. Kendrick followed with a winning performance in the 100m dash, posting a career-best time of 11.24. However, her time was not an improvement over her school record because it was wind-aided. Scott was third in the event (11.44).

Kendrick and Scott went neck-and-neck in the 200 final. The freshman held off the senior, by a mere hundredth of a second (23.50 to 23.51). Golladay was third with a time of 23.96. Warren Fraser hit a personal best in the 200m dash on Saturday for the men’s team. The Bahamian freshman had a time of 21.44 with a legal wind and finished runner-up.

Kim Ruck won the women’s 1500m run on Saturday, with a time of 4:43.95. Ruck also ran the 800m on Friday evening. She currently holds strong enough times to qualify for the NCAA East Preliminary Round in both the 5K and 10K.

Spencer Adams returned to action for the first time since the ACC Championships. The All-ACC performer won the 110 high hurdles with a time of 13.92, leading a sweep of the top three spots for Clemson. Charlton Rolle (13.99) was runner-up, followed by Miller Moss (14.49) in third. Moss was also third in the quarter mile, with a time of 48.53.

Jordan Rispress was runner-up in the men’s intermediate hurdles with a time of 54.48.

Nakeisha Wineglass captured the women’s triple jump with a leap of 41’0.5″. She earned her undergraduate degree on Friday as well. April Sinkler won the high jump with a top clearance of 5’10.75″, despite having trouble navigating the wind.

Caroline Kennedy won the women’s pole vault after clearing 12’10.75″, one day after earning her degree in health science. Amy Morrison was third in the event for the Tigers with a clearance of 12’4.75″. Chris Spear, who also graduated on Friday, won the men’s vault with a clearance of 16’10.75″. He encountered a scary moment on his final attempt, when he was thrown backwards off his pole. Spear was able to walk away on his own strength.

Alex Padgett won the men’s shot put after putting together a top throw of 52’9.5″. Brittney Waller was runner-up in the women’s hammer throw. The freshman from Greenville, SC had a top mark of 166’3″ on Saturday.

Bethanie Wachna led a 1-2-3 sweep in the women’s javelin. The red-shirt junior from Canada had a top throw of 146’6″. She also earned her undergraduate degree on Friday from Clemson. Linda Buchholz was second with a throw of 143’11”, while Karine Farias placed third after a mark of 129’3″.

The Tigers ended the day by winning the men’s and women’s mile relays. The women’s group of Pringley, Kendrick, Austin and Golladay had the top time at 3:41.80. Golladay pulled ahead of Western Carolina’s anchor leg in the final 200 meters to propel Clemson to victory.

The teams return to action next week in Atlanta for the Georgia Tech Invitational.
