CLEMSON, SC – Michaylin Golladay set a school record in the women’s 100 hurdles Saturday to lead Tiger track & field at the Clemson Final Qualifier. Tiger athletes won eight events on Saturday, despite a break in the action for over an hour due to a passing thunderstorm.

Director of Track & Field Lawrence Johnson talked with about some of the standouts this weekend for the men’s and women’s teams.

Golladay ran a smooth race with a +2.7 tailwind. She ran to a time of 12.93, breaking the school record (12.96) held by teammate Brianna Rollins. Freshman hurdler Bridgette Owens (13.10) was second, followed by Monique Gracia (13.38) in third.

Misha Morris was fourth, finishing with a time of 11.79. Monique Gracia was runner-up in the 200m dash with a time of 24.08, while Edgerson came home in sixth place.

Joe Craig did compete in the men’s 100 final and won with a time of 10.65. Warren Fraser was atop Clemson’s finishers in the men’s 200, as he clocked a time of 21.61 to place fifth overall. Craig was sixth in the event.

Both 4x100m relays were victorious on Saturday. The women began the afternoon with a time of 44.60 with a team consisting of Golladay, Joe Craig and La’Mont Jackson posted a season-best time of 39.98.

In the men’s 110m hurdles, Spencer Adams took home first-place honors with a time of 13.79. Miller Moss finished eighth with a time of 14.30. Moss also competed in the shot put, where he recorded a mark of 42’2.25″.

Wesh held off sophomore classmate Jordan Rispress finished third with a time of 52.53.

April Sinkler won the high jump with a solid performance, giving her a two-for-two sweep of jumps this weekend. She set a season-best in the event by clearing the bar at 6’0″ on her second attempt. She had three tries to match her personal best, but came up just short. Sinkler then scratched from the triple jump, as did Patricia Mamona after one attempt when the weather moved into the area. Mamona is No. 2 on the national performance list heading into the preliminary rounds of the NCAA Championships.

Alex Padgett, who earned his undergraduate degree Friday, took fifth in the men’s shot put. He hit on a mark of 55’8.5″. Cory Thalheimer was seventh with a personal best 54’6.5″, 10th on the school’s all-time performance list. Padgett was sixth in the hammer throw. He hit a mark of 194’6″ against an elite field of throwers.

Brittney Waller was runner-up in the women’s hammer throw to ACC champion Dorotea Habazin. Waller was consistent with her best mark from a week ago, when she set a personal best. Waller’s top mark on the day was 185’11”, just shy of her personal best.

The official list of declarations and accepted entries for the NCAA East Preliminary Round, held May 26-28 in Bloomington, IN, will be announced in the coming week.
