WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Clemson University track & field standout Logan Morris moved from No. 4 to No. 3 all-time in program history in the women’s mile Saturday. The sophomore ran 4:41.26 to win the event at JDL’s DMR Invitational, which should officially convert to 4:38.51 on the NCAA performance list. Entering the weekend, Morris’ converted time would also rank third in the ACC.
In addition to Morris, Clemson also saw a pair of top collegiate finishes from newcomer Marcus Parker in the men’s 60m dash and senior Kendra Clarke in the women’s 400m dash.
Parker competed in his second meet as Tiger and ran 6.80 back-to-back in Saturday’s prelims and finals. The sophomore was the first collegiate competitor to lunge across the finish line and placed second overall. Parker still leads the team in the event, which he achieved at last weekend’s Tiger Paw Invite, with a time of 6.79 seconds.
Clarke secured her first indoor 400m win in a Clemson uniform among a field of 24 participants. Clarke posted her second-best time of the season, 55.63 seconds.
Up next, the Tigers head to Blacksburg, Virginia for the ACC Indoor Track & Field Championships, which are slated for Feb. 21-23.
