CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson track and field program is set to compete at the ACC Outdoor Track and Field Championship Meet from Thursday, May 11 through Saturday, May 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. 57. 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. 5 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-25 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 10th-fastest in the nation this season and second-best in the ACC. The 400 meter hurdles group is ranked No. 11 in the country.
The Tigers performed wonderfully at the 2023 ACC Indoor ACC Championship Meet, with both teams finishing third in the conference. Freshman Oneka Wilson won the 60 meter hurdles championship, while Kiara Grant and Ockera Myrie won the 60 meter dash and 200 meter dash, respectively.
Giano Roberts won the 60 meter hurdles, Wanya McCoy won the 400 meter run, Tarees Rhoden won the 800 meter run for the second consecutive season and the men’s 4×400 meter relay took home gold. McCoy was named the Men’s Track MVP for his efforts.
Last season, the men finished sixth at ACC outdoors while the women finished fifth. The men’s 4xx400 meter relay will look to defend its 2022 title. The last men’s outdoor ACC Championship came in 2004 and the last women’s conference title came in 2015.
