Chapel Hill, NC – The women’s track & field team finished eighth Saturday at the ACC Indoor Championships, held at UNC’s Eddie Smith Field House. Patricia Mamona led the Lady Tigers again on Saturday, as she earned her second All-ACC honor of the weekend after finishing runner-up in the triple jump.

Virginia Tech earned its second straight ACC title with a total of 138 points this week, finishing ahead of North Carolina and Florida State, who tied for second with 88.5. The Lady Tigers accumulated 32 points on the week.

Mamona placed second in the triple jump and earned her fourth all-conference certificate overall, as she was two-time All-ACC last season in the triple jump and also finished third in the long jump Friday.

The sophomore from Portugal had a top distance of 43’3.25″, just one inch shy of her personal best in the event. Kim Williams of Florida State won the event with a jump of 44’0.75″. Mamona owns a strong NCAA provisional qualifying mark, but could compete next week in a last chance qualifier to try and improve her chances of making the national championship field in the event.

April Sinkler performed well in the triple jump and gave the program a second scorer in the event, as she finished fifth. She rebounded from a disappointing high jump to post a mark of 39’3″. Nakeisha Wineglass (37’9.25″) finished ninth in the triple jump.

Jenna Baker was Clemson’s lone competitor in the 3000m run Saturday. The freshman from Bellevue, OH finished 18th out of 36 runners in the event after crossing the finish line with a time of 10:00.86.

The Lady Tigers finished ninth in the 4x400m relay with a season-best time of 3:50.67. The relay team lineup was comprised of Michaylin Golladay, Polly Hardy, Candice Johnson, and Sierra Hill.
