CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson track and field team will travel for the first time this season for the Hokie Invitational to compete over two days of events. The meet begins at 5 p.m. on Friday, January 21. The first day of competition will conclude at 9 p.m. and the second day’s events will run from noon to 4 p.m.
The Invitational will welcome 12 teams to compete, including seven ACC opponents. The full field is as follows: Clemson, Virginia Tech, Louisville, Virginia, Duke, Wake Forest, NC State, North Carolina, Tennessee, UNC Charlotte, UCF, Georgetown.
Thus far, the Tigers have managed to set 11 all-time top-10 marks. This weekend will provide Program Director Mark Elliott’s team its first opportunity to compete on a different track, and in turn provide the coaches a chance to focus on the day’s events rather than all the logistics that go in to running a home meet.
Daniel Cope burst onto the scene last weekend, throwing a Clemson record 20.99m in the weight throw, while Shantae Foreman also began her Clemson career on a high note, leaping 1.73m in the high jump and placing herself in a tie for ninth on the all-time leaderboard.
This weekend also offers the Tigers a first-hand look at ACC foes with whom they will compete in the ACC Championships in late February. The squad will be looking to round into form as it approaches the end of the month and sets its eyes on that meet, also to be held at Virginia Tech.
