CLEMSON, S.C. – Five members of the Clemson men’s track and field team are set to compete in the 2022 Indoor National Championships hosted by University of Alabama at Birmingham. Daniel Cope will compete in the weight throw on Friday beginning at 5 p.m, while Aman Thornton will battle for the 800 meter crown, with the semifinals on Friday at 5:45 and the finals on Saturday at 5:30. The trio of Devon Brooks, Lafranz Campbell and Giano Roberts will all compete in the 60 meter hurdles semifinals on Friday at 5:55. Those who advance will move on to Saturday’s finals at 5:40. Times are listed in EDT.
Cope is looking to continue his incredibly impressive debut season with the Tigers, in which he has set the school-record in the weight throw with his ACC Championship-winning toss of 22.28 meters. That mark is good for the Jamaican National record in the event.
Thornton ran the second-fastest 800 meter time in Clemson history earlier this season. His time of 1:47.29 at the Tiger Paw Invitational in early February qualified him for nationals and is the eighth-fastest time run in the NCAA this season.
Brooks is the Clemson-record holder in the 60 meter hurdles with his 7.56 set earlier this season. He will be joined by teammates Campbell and Roberts as the Tigers take aim at bringing home a nationalx championship in the event. Roberts holds a 7.69 personal best with Campbell trailing shortly behind at 7.70.
“This is a great opportunity,” said Program Director Mark Elliott, “and one that is well-deserved and earned to be able to compete at the NCAA Championships.” These are the top 16 best athletes in the NCAA indoor track and field in their events, and to have these 5 men representing Clemson University is a great achievement for the 2022 indoor season. We are greatly looking forward to these championships.”
