Tigers Round Into Form at Bob Pollock Invitational

CLEMSON, S.C. — The Tigers’ penultimate home meet of the 2021-22 campaign saw 20 teams compete at the Clemson Indoor Track and Field Complex. The meet featured several ACC opponents as well as top-25 ranked teams, and was a great barometer for Clemson to gain an understanding of their position as the season marches further towards ACC Championships.

“Over the past two days we had some really good national marks. Conference wise, we’re shaping up pretty good… I’m happy with the way the team is moving forward” remarked Program Director Mark Elliott.

He went on to single out Kenya Livingston, Dashinelle Dyer, Guinove Joanus and Trishauna Hemmings as performers he felt are progressing strongly and displayed their prowess this weekend.


  • Dashinelle Dyer set a PR and climbed into the top-10 list in the 60m dash. His time of 6.65 seconds is the best of his career and is tied for the eighth fastest mark in Clemson history.
  • Alison D’Alessandro again launched herself to new heights, clearing 3.96m in the pole vault, good for her third PR of the season and fourth in Clemson history.
  • Shantae Foreman made her Clemson long jump debut in style, tying the school’s sixth-best mark with a 6.24m leap.
  • Both Ken’naria Gadson and Mackenzie Osher set PR’s in the 400m dash, while Kenya Thompson’s 400m time of 55.93 was the best mark set by a Tiger in the event.
  • Antoinette Van der Merwe set a season best 8.42 in the 60mH after advancing to the finals of the event. Lafranz Campbell and Giano Roberts also each survived prelims and semis to advance to the finals, where they ran 7.72 and 7.74 respectively.


  • The women’s high jump saw two Top-10 marks set as well as a Clemson winner in the event. Kenya Livingston leaped a personal best 1.80m to take home the crown and set a new third-best mark in school history. Shantae Foreman’s 1.77m clearance is tied for sixth on Clemson’s all-time list.
  • Three runners set PR’s in the men’s 800 meter. Tarees Rhoden, Carson Tillman and Cole Myers were the Tigers that upped their game, finishing in 1:50.25, 1:51.36 and 1:52.86 respectively.
  • In his first 200 meter dash with the Tigers, Cameron Rose ran a 21.01, just .01 seconds off making the top-10 list.
  • Josie Wirtz set another PR in the 3000 meter, running an impressive 9:41.19 and finishing atop her heat.
  • Harleigh White tied her PR in the women’s triple jump, flying 13.28m which is her current mark that sits fifth in Clemson history.
