Women Finish 5th, Men Finish 6th as Several Tigers Claim Individual Championships

DURHAM, N.C. — The 2022 ACC Outdoor Track and Field Championships concluded on Saturday, with the Clemson men finishing in sixth place and the women finishing fifth. The day saw Clemson claim ACC Championships in two events, as well as earn numerous All-ACC recognitions. The Tigers set several personal bests and had four top-10 marks on Saturday alone.

In total, the Tigers claimed three ACC Championships and had 15 All-ACC selections. “We saw a big improvement from women based on the indoor result, so I thought fifth was great,” said Program Director Mark Elliott. “With the men, we were hoping to be higher, but we had mishaps from a disqualification standpoint and left some points on the board that well. Overall, both teams performed well. We had a lot of champions and top 10 marks. Our goal was higher but we had lots of national qualified people, and we are turning our efforts there now.” 


  • Trishauna Hemmings took home the ACC Championship in the 100 meter hurdles, running a season best 13.00 to take the crown.
  • The day concluded with fireworks, as the men’s 4×400 meter relay team of Wanya McCoy, Tarees Rhoden, Cameron Rose and Aman Thornton set the facility record en route to the ACC Championship. The mark of 3:05.15 was best in the conference, earning Clemson the gold, as the Tigers won the event in both the indoor and outdoor season this year.
