Clemson will also run the women’s 100, men’s and women’s high hurdles, 200, 400 and 800. The event closes out with the 4×400 relays, the women at 8:05 and men at 8:10. Both teams set season bests last weekend, including the women’s group that established the program’s third-best time on record. Olivia James, Nia Fluker, Deja Parrish and Natoya Goule composed the relay.
