CLEMSON, SC – Twelve student-athletes from the men’s and women’s track & field teams have traveled to Fayetteville, AR to compete at this weekend’s NCAA Indoor Championships. The two-day meet, which begins at 10 AM Friday, will be held at the Randal Tyson Track Center at the University of Arkansas.

The Tiger program will have a full day of action on Friday, and it gets started early with Miller Moss competing in the heptathlon at 10:00. Moss auto qualified for the national meet after his runner-up performance at the ACC Championships two weeks ago. Moss is Clemson’s record-holder with 5,699 points. The first four events of the heptathlon will be held Friday.

April Sinkler automatically qualified in two events, and she will compete in both Friday. The high jump is scheduled for 2:45 PM, and long jump at 7:25. Sinkler won ACC crowns in both, and was subsequently named Field Event Athlete-of-the-Year as a result of her performance two weeks ago. She did not compete a year ago at nationals due to injury.

On the track Friday, Clemson will have participants in the 60 hurdles, women’s 200m dash and women’s 5K. Spencer Adams (5:25 PM) will compete in the men’s hurdle prelims, while Michaylin Golladay and Brianna Rollins (5:40) are slated for the women’s event. Rollins will also run in the preliminaries for the 200 dash at 7:40. The finals for that event are also Friday, at 8:55. Ruck will compete in the women’s 5K final at 8:20.

On Saturday, Moss will conclude his action in the heptathlon starting at 11:00 AM.

Weber enters the national meet as the No. 1 seed in the pentathlon, having totaled 4,262 points at ACCs two weeks ago.

Sinkler will return to action Saturday for her third event, the triple jump. She and teammate Patricia Mamona are scheduled to compete at 6:30 PM. Mamona is one of the top seeds after jumping over 45 feet early this season. Following the finals for the 60m hurdles, Clemson’s 4x400m relay team will take to the track at 8:40 PM.
