CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson track and field program will be represented by six individuals at the 2021 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships, set to run from Thursday, March 11, through Saturday, March 13. Clemson will have all six of its athletes open their competition on Friday, March 12. The University of Arkansas will host the meet at its Randal Tyson Track Center for the twelfth time in history and the first time since 2015.
“There’s a lot of emotion flowing because I can still vividly remember being out in Albuquerque last year, watching Laurie [Barton] and Andrea [Foster] and all of our kids we had out there last year step off the track with tears in their eyes when we found out that the championships were canceled,” said Clemson’s Director of Track & Field, Mark Elliott. “So, moving from there to now, it’s good to go back. We need to make the best of every circumstance we face, so I’m looking forward to it!”
The Tigers will be represented in the women’s 800 meters by Laurie Barton and Andrea Foster, while Trishauna Hemmings will compete in both the women’s 60-meter hurdles and 200m. Hemmings is the only athlete at this year’s championships, regardless of gender, to be entered in both events. On the men’s side, Giano Roberts will represent the Tigers in the men’s 60m hurdles, Terryon Conwell will compete in the 200m, and Fabian Hewitt will race in the 60m. Hewitt is the first Tiger to compete in the straight-away sprint since Tevin Hester in 2016.
“All six of them know that they’re one of the 16 best athletes in the country as it relates to their event,” added Elliott. “They need to stay focused and do what they’ve been doing all year. They just need to be ready to show up and we’ll see where it takes us from that point.”
