TUSCALOOSA, AL – The Clemson women’s track and field team opened its 2005 outdoor campaign this weekend at the Alabama Relays held at the Sam Bailey Track. The Lady Tigers brought home six top-five finishes in their first outdoor meet. Barton’s fifth-place finish in the 3000m steeplechase was particularly notable, as she re-set her Clemson record in the event. Her time of 11:18.17 at the Alabama Relays was a personal-best time by 40 seconds, as her previous personal-best and school record time was 11:58.95.

On the track, Renata Miyamoto competed in the 200m, posting times of 25.71 and 26.50, respectively.

Hardy and Miyamoto also competed in the 100m hurdles, with Hardy crossing the finish line in 14.47 to place seventh. Miyamoto finished in 14.67 to place ninth in the event. The Lady Tigers’ 4x200m relay finished in 1:46.11 in that event, while Clemson’s 1600m sprint medley relay team crossed the finish line in 4:13.35 to place 10th.

Anni Korhonen tied for fifth in the high jump with a clearance of 5’5″, while Sara Young tied for second in the pole vault with a mark of 11’5.75″. Helen Kirkland and Kristin Thompson also competed in the pole vault, with both Lady Tigers clearing 10′.

Allison Bradshaw finished 18th in the hammer throw with her mark of 137’11”. Woods earned a third-place finish in the javelin throw with her mark of 121’1″.
