AUSTIN, Texas – Clemson’s Torie Robinson achieved the program’s fastest time (all-conditions) in the women’s 100m dash Saturday at the Texas Relays. The senior registered a time of 11.16 seconds to top Dezerea Bryant’s 2013 time of 11.20 seconds (non-wind aided). Robinson placed fifth overall in Saturday’s finals.
The women’s 4x800m relay team consisting of Katie Fortner, Kamryn McIntosh, Grace Barnett and Fellan Ferguson opened action for the Tigers in the morning. Clemson placed second as Ferguson crossed the finish line at the 8:30.58 mark, finishing just one second shy of a stout Texas A&M unit.
On the men’s side, Nate Gordon Malik Epps, Mpho Makofane and John Lewis also earned a second-place finish for Clemson with a time of 7:26.88. Makofane’s split of 1:51.92 moved the Tigers from third to second on the third leg over Arkansas. Lewis continued to run a strong anchor for the Tigers, registering a split of 1:48.38 to maintain second place.
Sophomore Ebony Williams posted her all-conditions best in the women’s 100m hurdles. Williams’ time of 13.45 (3.3w) seconds bested her all-conditions record by 0.01 seconds.
The meet concluded with the 4x400m relays as both Clemson teams placed fourth overall. The women’s team consisted of Lakeisha Warner, Kendra Clarke, Kamryn McIntosh and Fellan Ferguson, who totaled a time of 3:34.96. Cordell Lamb, Deonte Tolbert, John Lewis and Jeffrey Green crossed the finish line in 3:05.11. Both times are season bests for the Tigers. Entering this weekend, the men’s time of 3:05.11 would rank first in the ACC, while the women’s would be just 0.20 seconds shy of Miami’s conference-leading time.
