Tigers Show Out at Florida Relays

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — It was an impressive weekend for Clemson’s track and field program at the Florida Relays. Several Tigers set personal bests and a few brought home gold in their events. The meet was Clemson’s third competition of the season and the team is certainly beginning to round into form at this stage of the spring.

The weekend was marked by several weather postponements, but the interruptions did not stop the Tigers from putting together a cohesive team performance that leaves the staff feeling confident about the future.

“We had a lots of good thing happen and all the weather delays did not have much of an effect on our athletes,” said Program Director Mark Elliott. “Both teams performed much better across all event areas.”

Clemson will look to carry the momentum into next weekend, when it will travel to Knoxville, Tenn. for the Tennessee Relays. That meet will occur on Friday, April 8 and Saturday, April 9.


  • Rojé Stona won the discus throw with an impressive 60.63 meter mark. The victory was his second in as many weekends, as he took home the crown at Austin Relays as well.
  • Harleigh White dominated the triple jump, leaping 12.59 meters, furthest of 11 in the field and best by almost half of a meter.
