DURHAM, N.C. — The second day of competition at the 2022 ACC Outdoor Track and Field Championships was an historic one for Clemson. Senior Harleigh White earned the ACC crown in the women’s triple jump with a 13.05 meter leap. On the track, several Tigers set personal bests, and, in doing so, qualified for Saturday’s finals, setting the program up for an exciting final day of events.
“Today was the moving day,” said Program Director Mark Elliott. “We had a lot of finalists, but like any championship, there were some mishaps. Both teams now have to be ready to be flawless tomorrow.”
Going into Saturday, the men are in 12th place with 2 points, but will have plenty of opportunities to put themselves up near the top. The women are in 10th place with 13 points, with several events in which the team expects big points yet to be completed.
The Tigers will have at least one participant in the men’s and women’s 4×100 relay, women’s 100 meter hurdles, men’s 110 meter hurdles, women’s 400 meter dash, women’s 100 meter dash, men’s 800 meter dash, men’s and women’s 400 meter hurdles, men’s and women’s 200 meter dash, and the men’s and women’s 4×400 meter relay. School record holder Rojé Stona is also set to compete in Saturday’s discus throw finals. The day’s action will begin with that competition at 11 a.m.
