June 15, 2010

CLEMSON, SC – The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association released the official list of 2010 outdoor collegiate All-Americans on Monday. Clemson’s women’s track & field team produced seven All-America honors from the past weekend at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. It put a close to an impressive indoor and outdoor campaign for the women’s program, which won the ACC Championship in both seasons for the first time in the same academic year.

Six student-athletes were responsible for the All-America certificates, with April Sinkler earning the honor across two events. The seven total honors were the most for the Tiger women’s team since the 2001 squad came home with 12.

Clemson’s top performer this past weekend was red-shirt junior Gisele Oliveira won the indoor version of the event in 2005. It was Mamona’s second All-America honor of the 2010 season, as she was indoor runner-up in the triple jump in March as well.

Sinkler achieved All-America status in both the long jump and triple jump, just as she did during indoor season. It gives her four All-America certificates for 2010, putting her in a tie for seventh on Clemson’s all-time list for most All-America honors. Sinkler was 10th in the long jump and 15th in the triple jump.

The final four All-Americans were part of the 4x100m relay, which finished in fourth place on Saturday at the NCAA national meet. It was Clemson’s best showing in the event, matching the fourth-place effort by the 2001 team. The relay was made up of Michaylin Golladay, Stormy Kendrick, Kristine Scott and Jasmine Edgerson. It was Edgerson’s second All-America performance in 2010, as she was part of the fifth-place 4x400m group indoors. Monday’s honor was the first ever for Golladay, Kendrick and Scott.
