Blacksburg, VA – Patricia Mamona recorded her second runner-up finish of the weekend Saturday in the long jump to lead Clemson’s women’s track & field team on the final day of competition at the Virginia Tech Elite Meet. Mamona was runner-up Friday in the triple jump after posting a strong NCAA qualifying mark.
Mamona was second in the long jump after finishing with a top distance of 19’8″. Her top mark this season was 19’9.75″ at Florida two weeks ago. Not far behind her Saturday was freshman April Sinkler, who placed fifth overall after a mark of 18’10.75″.
Caroline Kennedy earned a tie for third place Saturday in the invitational pole vault. The Orlando, FL native matched her personal best with a clearance of 12’5.5″. Her mark ranks in a tie for third in school history.
Jenna Baker earned a third-place finish in the open section of the mile run. The freshman from Ohio posted a time of 5:05.65, which ranks second on the team this season behind only Stephanie Buffo.
Polly Hardy was seventh in the invitational high hurdles. She had a time of 8.52 on Saturday. Michaylin Golladay was 10th in the 400m dash with a season-best time of 58.32.

Abby Iselborn was the team’s top finisher in the 3000m run Saturday. She had a time of 10:26.61, an improvement of nearly nine seconds from when she ran the 3K earlier this year at the Clemson Invitational.
