Clemson Women’s Track And Field – NCAA Day Two Results

May 31, 2001

EUGENE, OR – The Clemson women’s track and field team completed day two competition at the NCAA Outdoor Championships at Hayward Field on Thursday. The Lady Tigers’ Jamine Moton took second in the shot put, while the 4x400m relay team and Cydonie Mothersill set school records in their events.

Moton, a junior from Glassboro, NJ, recorded a throw of 56’4 ” (17.19m) to finish as the runner-up in the shot put. This is her third All-American honor this year, as she finished second in the shot put and third in the weight throw at the NCAA Indoor Championships. Moton entered the NCAA Outdoor Championships with the top mark in the nation (58’2 “).

“I am excited about this finish but not satisfied,” said Moton following her performance. “I am looking forward to a rematch with UCLA’s Tolson in two weeks (at the USA Track and Field Senior National Championships).”

Clemson assistant coach Cathy Erickson said, “People underestimated Jamine’s ability to rebound from yesterday’s performance in the discus and record a mark of 56′. I think Jamine has proven she is and will continue to be one of the top shot putters in the nation.”

The Lady Tigers’ 4x400m relay team of Michelle Burgher, LaShonda Cutchin, Marcia Smith and Cydonie Mothersill qualified for the finals of that event with a school-record time of 3:30.11. The team shattered the former record of 3:31.84 that they had tied earlier this season. The finals of the 4x400m relay are slated for Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

Cydonie Mothersill also set a school record in the 100m dash. Mothersill recorded a personal and Clemson-best time of 11.27 in the trials of the event, finishing second in her heat and fourth overall. She will compete in the semifinals of the 100m dash on Friday at 5:45 p.m.

Michelle Burgher and Shekera Weston competed in the 400m dash held Thursday evening. Burgher recorded a time of 52.85, finishing third in her heat, while Weston posted a time of 52.92 and finished second in her heat. Neither Burgher nor Weston qualified for the finals of that event.

The Lady Tigers’ 4x100m relay team will compete in the finals of that event Friday at 5:00 p.m., after qualifying on Wednesday with a time of 43.62.
