CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson track and field program will travel to Philadelphia, Pa. to compete at the 127th Penn Relays from Thursday, Apr. 27 through Saturday, Apr. 29. The meet will begin for Clemson on Thursday at 5 p.m. and pause after the men’s 5k at 8:15 pm. The Tigers will begin competition on Friday at 12 p.m. and pause again at 6:40 p.m. and then wrap up on Saturday from 12:40 p.m. to 6 p.m. The Penn Relays marks the Tigers’ second to last meet before ACC Championships in Raleigh, N.C. from May 11-13.

The Tigers are having an incredible season to this point, having put up numerous impressive performances in all of their meets. The men’s team is ranked No. 7 in the nation by the USTFCCCA, while the women are placed at No. 51. The men are the only ACC men’s program ranked in the top-10 in the nation and one of just three in the top-25.

The Clemson men are ranked in the top-15 in the 100 meter dash, 400 meter run and 800 meter run. Following Tarees Rhoden’s nation leading 1:46.20 time in the 800 meters at the Tom Jones Invitational, the Tigers have the No. 3 ranked 800 meter group in the nation. The men also hold the No. 3 spot in the 100 meter dash, thanks in large part to Wanya McCoy and Cameron Rose, who both hold top-10 times in the nation in the event.

The women are ranked in the top-20 in each of the 100 meter dash, 400 meter hurdles, 400 meter run and 800 meter run. Lashanna Graham’s 56.54 400 meter hurdles time run at the Tom Jones Invitational is ninth-fastest in the nation this season and second-best in the ACC. The 400 meter hurdles group is ranked No. 8 in the country.

The Tigers have a great history at Penn Relays. Last season, the men’s 4×200 meter relay of Wanya McCoy, Cameron Rose, Fabian Hewitt and Guinove Joanus took home a famou Penn Relays Wagon Wheel as they won the event with a time of 1:22.91. Clemson will certainly have an opportunity to win more hardware, as each of the men’s 4×100 meter relay, men’s 4×400 meter relay, and women’s 4×400 meter relay are ranked in the top-25 in the nation.
