Clemson Cruises on Friday at Tom Jones Invitational

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — The first day of the Tom Jones Invitational proved fruitful for the Clemson track and field program. The Tigers set multiple top-10 marks and saw great improvements from multiple athletes as the team looks to continue its strong form this season. Competition will resume on Saturday at 9 a.m. with the women’s discus throw and conclude at 6 p.m. with the men’s 1600 meter relay.



  • Cameron Rose ran a blistering 20.25 in the 200 meter dash. His time was aided by a 2.9 mph wind, but still qualifies for fifth on Clemson’s all-time all conditions list for the event.
  • Lashanna Graham ran a 56.54 in the 400 meter hurdles to move up to No. 3 in school history in the event. Her previous personal best of 57.17 seconds was No. 6 on the list.

  • Victor Ndiwa set a huge personal best in the 1500 meter run to earn the No. 7 spot in school history. His 3:44.12 time was over five seconds faster than his previous personal best.
