PHILADELPHIA, Pa. — The 126th iteration of the Penn Relays concluded on Saturday as several Tigers earned the opportunity to compete for championships to close out what was an extremely impressive weekend for Clemson’s track and field program. Most notably, Rojé Stona broke his own school record in the discus throw and set the new mark at 65.11 meters.
Stona’s record-breaking throw comes the day after the men’s 4×200 meter relay group took home the wagon wheel in the event, finishing the race in 2:22.91 to win it. Many Tigers set solid marks and finished near the top of their events in what was an incredibly strong overall weekend for Program Director Mark Elliott’s squad.
“It was another good day for both teams,” remarked Elliott. The efforts were there and Rojé had another big throw today. Both teams are shaping up well for the ACC’s.”
The Tigers have one more weekend to gear up for ACC Championships in Durham, N.C. from May 12-14. Some will spend that weekend in Knoxville, Tenn. for the Tennessee Challenge on May 7 as the final tune-up of the regular season.
