CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The Clemson Track & Field team is set to compete at the 2019 ACC Outdoor Track & Field Championships Thursday through Saturday (May 9-11), which will be held at Lannigan Field on the campus of the University of Virginia. The Tiger men are seeking their 11th outright conference title in program history, while the women vie for their eighth ACC outdoor championship.
Clemson will get things started on Thursday with Danielle Little in the women’s hammer beginning at 2 p.m. Thursday’s first event on the track is the women’s 400mH prelims, featuring Lakiesha Warner, Markeeta Thomas, Courtashia Felton and Olivia Cooney, at 6:10 p.m. Thursday’s lone running event final is the 10,000m and features Erin McLaughlin and Elizabeth Dawson, beginning at 7:50 p.m. A full slate of events and preliminaries will commence Friday and Saturday, with finals in most of the running events wrapping up the Championships on Saturday evening.
Marcus Parker (200m) and Roje Stona (discus) lead the men’s squad with conference-leading marks in their respective events. On the women’s side, the Tigers will look to junior sprinter Rebekah Smith to score big for Clemson in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay. Smith was the Tigers’ leading scorer at the 2019 ACC Indoor Championships, where she combined for 10 points on behalf of the Tiger women. Additionally, Janell Fullerton – the 2019 ACC Indoor women’s shot put runner-up – will make her bid for the conference title.
