Track & Field Set to Host Bob Pollock Invitational

CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson track & field team is set to host its fourth meet of the 2018-19 season, the Bob Pollock Invitational, Friday and Saturday (Jan. 25-26) at the Clemson Indoor Track & Field Complex. Teams such as Alabama, Auburn, Florida A&M, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, UCF, Virginia Tech, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest will compete in the two-day meet.

Friday’s action kicks off with the 60m dash of the men’s heptathlon. The women’s long jump, women’s pole vault, men’s shot put and women’s 60m hurdles (prelims) open the individual events Friday.

Clemson is coming off handful of impressive performances from last weekend’s Clemson Invitational. Among those performances was John Lewis, who moved from No. 10 to No. 9 in Clemson history in the men’s mile last Friday. Lewis was also just shy of the program record in the 600m dash Saturday. Lewis is slated to appear in his first open 800m race – his natural event – on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. Additionally, newcomer LaFranz Campbell is set to compete in the men’s 60m hurdles Friday at 3:40 p.m. Campbell (7.85) currently ranks 18th in the country in the event, a mark he achieved two weeks ago at the Orange & Purple Elite.

On the women’s side, junior Rebekah Smith is entered in the 60m and 200m dashes for the second consecutive week. Last week, Smith ran the No. 14 time (7.32) in the country in the 60m dash, which is also good for second in the ACC. Sophomores Kamryn McIntosh and Logan Morris and junior Andrea Foster are slated to race in the first section of Friday’s mile at 3:55 p.m. McIntosh and Foster are also scheduled to run in their primary event, the 800m, on Saturday at 12:15 p.m.

Admission is free to all home Clemson track & field meets.
