Stona, Women’s 4x400m Victorious at ACC Championships Saturday


CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – For just the third time in Clemson track & field history, the Tigers saw a new ACC champion in the men’s discus. Roje Stona took home the gold medal in the event after throwing for 58.44m (191-9) on his fourth attempt of the day. In addition to Stona, Kendra Clarke, Aliyah Mallard, Andrea Foster and Kamryn McIntosh won the women’s 4x400m conference title in the pouring rain at the University of Virginia’s Lannigan Field. The group turned in a time of 3:36.12 as Andrea Foster (54.24) ran the Tigers’ fastest split to give Clemson enough headway to bring home its first outdoor conference title in the event since 2013.

Both the Clemson men (52.5) and women (66) placed fifth overall. Florida State won the women’s championship with 134 points, while Virginia Tech (123) claimed the men’s championship trophy.

In addition Stona and the women’s 4x400m, Clemson also took to the podium on five separate occasions.

For the men, Marcus Parker – in his first outdoor ACC Championship – won the bronze medal in the 200m dash after turning in a time of 10.36 seconds on the wet track. In addition to earning First Team All-ACC honors in the 200m, Parker’s sixth-place finish in the 100m earned him Second Team All-ACC accolades, too.

Joining Stona on the podium, was Grant Voeks, who placed third in the men’s discus. Voeks threw for 54.16m (177-8) Saturday as he and Stona combined for 16 points in the opening event of the day.

The women, who tallied 63 of their 66 points on the day, were led by Rebekah Smith, who tied her career-best finish in the 100m dash at an ACC Outdoor Championship meet. The junior ran 11.31 in Saturday’s finals to earn First Team All-ACC in the event for the third straight year. Smith (23.96) also registered three points – and Second Team honors – for the Tigers after placing sixth in the 200m finals.

Smith also led the women’s 4x100m relay, which consisted of Mallard, Sarah Hill and Zeniyah Lawrence, to a third-place finish to earn Second Team All-ACC accolades. Smith, Mallard, Hill and Lawrence ran 44.43 in section No. 2.

Foster, the 2018 NJCAA 800m outdoor champion who transferred to Clemson this past fall, took second in the open 800m finals. In addition to leading the Tiger women in the 4x400m, Foster ran a personal best 2:06.15 in tough conditions and moved from No. 8 to No. 7 all-time in program history.

In the field, Clemson was led by freshmen Kenya Livingston (high jump) and Veronica Fraley (discus), both of whom placed fourth in their respective events. Livingston cleared a of height of 1.70m (5-7), which is also good for a personal best. Fraley was the top freshman in the discus after throwing for 50.61m (166-0) on her second attempt of the afternoon.
