Clemson Women’s Track & Field Holds Steady at No. 4 in National Computer Ratings

Feb. 3, 2011

CLEMSON, SC – The Clemson women’s track & field team held strong this week at the No. 4 position in the national computer ratings, which were released Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). There was no movement ahead of the Tigers this week, either, as Oregon remains atop the ratings, followed by Texas A&M and LSU.

Clemson has four student-athletes that rank among the top 10 in the nation in their respective events this week. According to the Track & Field Results Reporting System (TFRRS), sophomore Stormy Kendrick is still the No. 1 ranked sprinter in the 60 meters. She posted a time of 7.22 – also a Clemson record for the event – two weeks ago at the Hokie Invitational.

Brianna Rollins is No. 2 on the TFRRS performance list for the 60 meter hurdles. The sophomore out of Miami, FL clocked an 8.15 two weeks ago as well, just shy of an automatic qualifying time for the NCAA Indoor Championships. Brittney Waller moved to No. 7 on the 20-pound weight throw list, as she put together a personal best 67’0″ toss last weekend at the JRF Combined Events Invitational. A fourth student-athlete ranked among the nation’s top 10 is April Sinkler, who hit a triple jump of 42’4″ at Virginia Tech two weeks ago.

Several student-athletes on the Clemson women’s squad are ranked among the top 20 in various events as well. The Tigers return to action on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 4-5, for the Virginia Tech Elite Meet in Blacksburg, VA.
