Women’s Shuttle Hurdle Relay Places Third at Penn Relays

April 29, 2011

PHILADELPHIA – The Clemson women placed third in the shuttle hurdle relay Friday to highlight the second day of action for Tiger track & field at the Penn Relays. Also on day two, the Tigers qualified for a pair of Saturday finals in the 4x200m relay at historic Franklin Field.

The women’s shuttle hurdle relay team was missing a key ingredient in NCAA indoor champion Janice Jackson. The group posted a time of 53.98 and was edged for the runner-up spot by UCF. Jackson went on to compete in the individual 100m hurdles, where she clocked a time of 14.04 and was 20th overall.

The women’s 4x100m relay placed sixth in the championship final on Friday. The team of Golladay, Marlena Wesh, Stormy Kendrick and Edgerson clocked a time of 44.43, consistent with several performances from earlier this outdoor season.

Both of Clemson’s 4x200m relays qualified for Saturday’s championship finals. The women’s team of Wesh, Kendrick, Golladay and Edgerson had the fourth-best time in the prelims at 1:33.85, as the Tigers held off Houston to win their heat. The men’s 4x200m relay consisted of La’Mont Jackson, Jordan Rispress. The group placed third in a fast heat that featured SEC powers Florida and LSU. The Tigers had a time of 1:23.99 and will compete Saturday in the final at 2:45 PM.

The lone field event competitors Friday were men’s long jumpers Josh Fowler and Will Robinson, who both fouled their first two attempts. Robinson hit the best legal mark between the two on his third jump, which was a distance of 22’10.75″.

The action concludes Saturday for the Tigers, who return home for two straight weekends to host action at Clemson’s Rock Norman Track.
