GAINESVILLE, Fla. – For the second straight meet in as many weeks, Clemson junior Grant Voeks registered his second straight victory – this time in the discus- on a career best toss of 55.73m (182-10.25) Friday at the Florida Relays. With Friday’s mark, Voeks remains at No. 5 all-time in program history and is one of just two Clemson throwers to rank in the program’s top-10 in multiple events.
In addition to Voeks, Clemson saw a number of standout performances on the track as well as freshman Veronica Fraley, who set the program’s No. 2 mark in the discus.
“I think across the board, we’re really coming along nicely,” said Clemson track & field head coach Mark Elliott. “Our team – on both sides – is competing hard and it’s showing. We obviously had some big performances today – Veronica, Andrea, Deonte and Grant – along with so many others. We’ve got to keep this momentum going all the way through our championship season.”
The Tigers return to action Saturday for day three of the Florida Relays, beginning with men’s discus and women’s hammer at 11 a.m. On the track, collegiate events start at noon with the women’s 4x100m shuttle hurdle relay.
