CLEMSON, SC – Clemson is in 16th place in the Division I Sears Directors’ Cup, presented by the nation’s athletics directors.

It is administered by NACDA and sponsored by Sears, Roebuck and Co.
During the winter, Clemson picked up points in women’s indoor track with a third place finish and men’s track with a 20th place finish.
