Tigers Return For Bob Pollock Invitational

CLEMSON, S.C. – The Tigers come home to host 10 schools in the Bob Pollock Invitational taking place January 27-28. Four of the programs visiting Clemson this weekend are ranked in the nation’s top 25.

Competing on Clemson’s newly renovated indoor track this weekend will be Alabama’s No. 7 men and No. 22 women as well as NC State’s No. 15 women and the sprinters from Virginia Tech’s No. 16 men’s program. Virginia Tech and NC State are two of the five ACC opponents Clemson will face off with this weekend as Duke, Georgia Tech and Florida State are among the list of visiting opponents.

The Tigers currently own 12 top-20 times or marks in the country heading into the weekend. The men’s and women’s programs are split with six top-20 performances each. Last time out, Mpho Makofane and Terrell Jackson ran the seventh and 12th fastest 800 meter run times in the country respectively. Makofane’s time was the second fastest time in program history while Jackson’s time declared him as the fastest freshman to ever compete in the event for the Tigers. The record broken by Jackson marks the fourth-straight meet in which a Clemson student-athlete set a record.
