Former Lady Tiger Track And Field Standouts To Compete At USA Championships

June 19, 2003

Two former Lady Tiger track and field standouts will compete at the USA Championships to be held in Palo Alto, CA, from June 19-22. Jamine Moton and Shekera Weston were NCAA Champions while at Clemson, and are scheduled to compete in the hammer throw and 200m, respectively.

Moton, who is coached by Lady Tiger assistant coach Glenn McAtee and throws for SpringCo Athletics, will take to the field on June 19 at 5:30 PM (PT) to compete in the hammer throw. A six-time All-American and the 2002 NCAA Champion in the hammer throw while at Clemson, Moton recorded her season-best mark of 216’9″ at the NC-SC Collegiate All-Star Meet held April 12 at Clemson’s Rock Norman Track Complex.

During her collegiate career at Clemson, Moton won the 2002 NCAA Championship in the hammer throw, and was the 2002 NCAA Runner-up in the weight throw indoors. She also earned NCAA Runner-up honors in the shot put indoor and outdoor in 2001. A six-time NCAA All-American, Moton won 13 ACC Championships and was a 16-time All-ACC honoree. Most recently, she was the runner-up at the 2003 USATF Indoor Track and Field Championships.

Weston was a member of the Lady Tigers’ 2001 NCAA Outdoor Championship 4x400m relay team and was a nine-time All-American during her career at Clemson. She will compete in the 200m on June 21 at 3:45 PM (PT), and enters the competition with a season-best time of 23.07.

While at Clemson, Weston earned two top-eight finishes in the 200m at the NCAA Outdoor Championships, placing seventh in 1999 and fourth in 2001. She ranks fourth on the Lady Tigers’ career list in the 200m with a time of 23.09, and also places fourth in the 400m (52.81). Weston is a member of the Clemson record-holding 4x100m, 4x200m and 4x400m relay teams. The 2001 NCAA Championship 1600m relay team set a Clemson record of 3:29.97 en route to the national crown, and the Lady Tigers’ 400m relay team placed fourth at the NCAA Championships with a time of 39.62 set in the qualifying round.
