Track & Field To Close Out Regular Season at JDL DMR Invitational

Schedule (PDF) // Watch Live ($)

CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson University track & field team will close out its 2018-19 indoor regular-season campaign at the JDL DMR Invitational in Winston-Salem, North Carolina this weekend (Feb. 15-16). In addition to the women’s distance medley relay team, Clemson is set to travel six individuals to compete one last time before heading to Blacksburg, Virginia for the 2019 ACC Indoor Track & Field Championship meet (Feb. 21-23).

Friday’s DMR race is slated for 6:45 p.m., as the Tigers will square off against ACC foe North Carolina as well as Lee University, Queens University, Mount Olive and UNC Pembroke. The Clemson women hold the facility and meet record in the DMR as Kaley Ciluffo, Olivia James, Ersula Farrow and Grace Barnett ran 11:07.51 in 2016.

Sophomore Logan Morris will continue her bid to qualify for the upcoming NCAA indoor championship in the mile. Morris ran Clemson’s No. 4 all-time mark – 4:43.10 – in the event at the Bob Pollock Invitational on Jan. 25. As it currently stands, Morris would only need shave less than eight seconds off her current best to crack the nation’s top-16, which would advance her to the national championship meet. With JDL being a flat track, Morris’ time in Saturday’s mile will also convert down by approximately 4.7 seconds. Additionally, this will be her second race at JDL this season, having competed on JDL’s flat track at the Camel City Invitational on Feb. 2, where she ran the program’s No. 4 time in the 3000m.

Also taking to the track this weekend is newcomer Marcus Parker – on the men’s side – in the 60m dash. Parker was nothing short of impressive in his first outing in a Clemson uniform at last weekend’s Tiger Paw Invite. Parker ran the ACC’s No. 13 time – 6.79 – in the 60m dash. Additionally, Aliyah Mallard (200m), Kendra Clarke (400m), Lakeisha Warner (400m) and Markeeta Thomas (400m) are set to compete on Saturday.

This weekend’s meet will stream live and all races will be captured for on‐demand viewing as part of RunnerSpace’s +Plus subscription package.
