CLEMSON, S.C. — In his first-ever collegiate meet, Cameron Rose ran a 32.90 300m, good for a Clemson program record and the best mark in the nation thus far in the 2021-22 indoor season. It is the 11th-fastest NCAA time ever according to USTFCCCA records and placed less than seven-tenths of a second off the record time. His achievement earned him the ACC’s Men’s Track Performer of the Week honor.
Rose was highly recruited out of Harrisburg, N.C. and is quickly making a name for himself on the college level. The freshman standout figures to be a mainstay on the top stage in the sport for years to come.
“Thats a great accomplishment and it’s an indication of the kind of athlete he is,” remarked a proud Program Director Mark Elliott on the recognition. “To start the year off with that should give him great motivation…running 32-point-anything in the 300 this early in the year is very commendable.”
Rose and the Tigers will have some time off before the season continues on January 8 at the Clemson Indoor Track and Field Complex for the Orange & Purple Elite Meet. For all information regarding Clemson Track & Field, visit ClemsonTigers.com and follow @ClemsonTrackXC on Twitter and Instagram.
