The women’s track & field team produced four All-America performances on Saturday and finished in a tie for seventh at the NCAA Indoor Championships, held at the Randal Tyson Track Center. Led by Patricia Mamona’s runner-up finish in the triple jump, Clemson posted its best team showing in women’s track & field at the NCAA Indoor Championships since the 2001 group was third. It was the third top-10 team finish in Clemson women’s track & field history at the NCAA Indoor Championships.

Mamona was national runner-up in the triple jump after setting a school record, breaking the mark of 45’1.75″ set by former NCAA Champion Gisele Oliveira in 2005. Mamona was third heading into the finals, but a monumental leap of 45’5.25″ elevated her past Florida’s Shara Proctor and into the runner-up position. It marks the first All-America performance in Mamona’s brilliant career.
