CLEMSON, SC – Brianna Rollins established the Texas Relays record and Mike A. Myers Stadium record after running a school-record time of 12.54 to win the 100 hurdles on Saturday in Austin, TX. Her victory was the first ever for Clemson track & field in the 86th running of the Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays.
Rollins cruised to a time of 12.54 behind a positive wind of 2.1 meters per second, just over the IAAF cutoff for a wind-aided performance. However, her time is acceptable within NCAA standards and is the second-best time in history. Only Ginnie Powell’s 12.48 in 2006 is faster.
Rollins took to the track a couple of hours later and ran the fastest split (52.20) for the Tigers’ 4×400 relay in what turned out to be an elite level race. Clemson ran a time of 3:33.10 – nearly a top three mark in school history – yet finished eighth out of nine teams. Brittany Pringley, Nia Fluker and Marlena Wesh comprised the rest of the relay.
Spencer Adams came up just short in his bid to join Rollins as champions at the Texas Relays. The red-shirt senior produced an outstanding time of 13.47 and was runner-up to Johnathan Cabral of Oregon. Fellow senior Marcus Maxey crossed the line in seventh place for the Tigers with a time of 13.80. The race had a +2.6 wind reading.
The only field action in Austin was in the high jump. Torian Ware tied for seventh on the men’s side with a leap of 6’10.75″, with freshman Mimi Land taking 10th in the women’s event after going over the bar at 5’8.75″.
In Raleigh, the Tigers saw Jasmine Edgerson return to action in the 200 dash. She ran a time of 24.90 in her first 200 since suffering a quad injury that forced her to miss the final month of indoor season.
The 4×1500 relays took home top-four finishes in Raleigh. The men were runner-up with a time of 15:46.37, while the women’s group produced a fourth-place showing and time of 18:41.19.
Aaron Ramirez was 12th in the invitational 800 meters, turning in a time of 1:51.97. Also in a Saturday running final, freshman Valencia Hannon took sixth in the 100 dash with a time of 12.03.
In the field, Ava Bell was 18th overall and won her section of the women’s hammer throw with a mark of 153’3″.
Clemson returns to action next weekend to take part in the Tiger Track Classic at Auburn University.
