RALEIGH, N.C. – The Clemson women’s track and field team qualified four student-athletes for the East Region Championships at the Raleigh Relays held this weekend. The Lady Tigers won the pole vault and triple jump, and finished second in the long jump and 1500m run.

Gisele Oliveira was also an event winner for Clemson, posting a Lady Tiger record leap of 43’6.5″ in the triple jump. Oliveira qualified for the region meet with that mark, and also qualified in the long jump. She recorded a mark of 19’10.75″ in the long jump, another personal-best mark. She is Clemson’s all-time leader in the triple jump and ranks fifth in the long jump. Silja Ulfarsdottir and Shakirah Rutherford also qualified for the East Region Championships in the 400m hurdles with times of 1:00.49 and 1:00.72, respectively. With those times, Ulfarsdottir placed fourth, while Rutherford took fifth.

In the 100m, Ramera Nero posted a time of 12.73 in the preliminaries of the 100m dash, and Denise Cruse and Marquita Dortch ran times of 56.34 and 59.57 in the 400m, respectively. In the 100m hurdles, Casey Phillips placed second in the 1500m run with a time of 4:40.69, and Laura Ann Rukat recorded a time of 4:58.00 in the event. Jennifer Hooten ran a time of 21:10.79 in the 5000m, and Katrina Moultrie competed in the 400m hurdles, recording a time of 1:10.48.

Off the track, Allison Bradshaw recorded a mark of 42’8.75″ in the shot put. Krystal Woods posted a throw of 147’5″ to place eighth in the discus, and Mary Gosselin recorded a personal-best throw of 152’11” in the hammer throw.
