Clemson Women’s Track And Field Inks Four In Early Signing Period

Dec. 2, 2004

CLEMSON, SC – Clemson head women’s track and field coach Marcia Noad announced the addition of four high school standouts to the 2005-06 Lady Tiger squad. Aleesha Barber, Krystal Barringer, Sunday Ford and Lauren Marriott have each signed National Letters of Intent to compete for the Lady Tigers.

“I feel we had a successful early signing period where we added several quality student-athletes both in-state and out,” said Noad. “These student-athletes will be positive contributors athletically, academically, and otherwise. This class will give us needed depth in some important event areas.”

Barber, a native of Decatur, GA, will graduate from Redan High School in 2005. She was the 2004 state 300m hurdle runner-up, finishing second to Clemson’s Tia Perry. Barber also earned runner-up honors as a junior in the 100m hurdles, and was the AAU Junior Olympic Region III Champion in the 100m hurdles.

Another hurdler from Charlotte, NC, Barringer will graduate from Harding University High School. She is a three-time state champion in the 100m hurdles, and was the 2004 North Carolina state champion in the triple jump. Barringer was the AAU Junior Olympic runner-up in the 100m hurdles.

Ford, a distance runner from Piedmont, SC, will graduate from Wren High School. On the cross country course, she finished second at the 2003 and 2004 South Carolina AAA state championships. Ford was the 2004 South Carolina AAA state champion in the 1600m and 3200m runs.

Marriott, a distance runner from Atlanta, GA, will graduate from St. Pius High School. She was the 2003 Georgia AAA state runner up in cross country.
