Official ACC Announcement
Clemson, S.C. – The ACC announced earlier today that Andrea Foster, a senior middle-distance runner for the Tigers, has been tabbed as the conference’s Women’s Track Performer of the Week. The honor comes after Foster ran a world-leading, nation-leading and personal best time of 2:05.30 in the women’s 800 meters this past Saturday (Jan. 18) at the Clemson Invitational. Foster’s result now makes her the sixth-fastest Tiger in program history for the event. Foster is the first Tiger to earn weekly honors this season.
Foster’s first-place finish at the Clemson Invitational was a superb performance, with the senior from Georgetown, Guyana taking the lead early in the race, crossing halfway in just over 61 seconds and then closing with strength and power over the final 200 meters. The final result was Clemson’s fastest indoor women’s 800 meters time in nearly two years.
Clemson’s Track and Field teams will return to action on Jan. 24-25 as they are set to host the Bob Pollock Meet. The Tigers’ full schedule can be found here.
