Aug. 4, 1999

CLEMSON, S.C. – Clemson head women’s track and field coach Ralph White announced today the hiring of Brantley Epps as the program’s administrative assistant. Epps will be responsible for overseeing the Tigers’ recruiting and team travel arrangements and will work closely with the team’s academic advisor to monitor academic progress.

“This complete another piece of the puzzle,” said White. “I’m very glad to have Brantley join our staff. She knows all of the athletes on the team and works well with them. Brantley has an energetic personality and a cheery disposition that will add a lot to our program.”

A native of Anderson, SC, Epps was a four-year letterwinner on the Clemson women’s track and field team. She earned All-ACC honors as a member of the distance medley relay team that placed second with a time of 11:55.31 at the 1998 ACC Indoor Championships. During the 1998 outdoor season, Epps ran on the 4x1500m relay team that set the school record with a time of 18:21.52 at the Penn Relays and the 4x800m relay team that set the Clemson record of 9:04.69 at the Sea Ray Relays.

As a graduate student last season, Epps placed 10th with a time of 4:41.13 in the 1500m at the ACC Outdoor Championships to help the Tigers to their first ACC title since 1991. She posted a career-best time of 2:12.08 in the 800m at the Georgia Tech Invitational. During the 1999 indoor season, Epps finished eighth in the 800m (2:20.14) and ninth in the mile (5:03.17) at the ACC Championships. Epps was consistently among Clemson’s top five runners during the 1998 cross country season. She finished 16th at the ACC meet and recorded a career-best time of 17:52.70 at the Notre Dame Invitational.

Epps earned her bachelor’s degree in parks, recreation and tourism management from Clemson in 1998. She was a member of the ACC Academic Honor Roll and the Clemson Athletic Honor Roll. Epps is currently pursuing a master’s degree in guidance and counseling at Clemson.
