Tigers Complete Doc Hale VT Meet in Blacksburg

BLACKSBURG, Va. – The Clemson Tigers wrapped up the final day of the Doc Hale VT Meet as multiple athletes recorded new personal bests and earned their best times and marks of the season.

“We accomplished what we needed to get done,” Track and Field Program Director Mark Elliot said. “We have some solid performances and more ACC qualifiers.”

The Tigers are close to completing the indoor regular season as the Doc Hale meet is one of the last road competitions Clemson will participate in before the ACC Championship towards the end of February. Up next, the Tigers will head home as they are set to host the Tiger Paw Invitational, which will mark their biggest meet of the season. Events will start on Friday, Feb. 9 and will wrap up on Saturday, Feb. 10.
