Meet Program

Clemson, SC – The women’s track & field team will be one of 13 schools participating in this weekend’s Yellow Jacket Invitational, held at the George C.

Three student-athletes from Clemson will compete in the javelin throw at 10:30 AM Saturday, including multi-event performers Linda Buchholz and Liane Weber. The natives of Germany are also entered in the 100m dash Saturday afternoon. Buchholz is the school record-holder in the javelin with a throw of 152’5″, which came in this same meet last season. Bethanie Wachna, who ranks fourth on the all-time javelin performance list, will also compete Saturday.

Ra’Sheena Parker, Krystal Barringer, and Michaylin Golladay. The 100m hurdles will take place at 12:55 PM approximately. Polly Hardy already posted a regional-qualifying time in that event last weekend. Barringer hopes to do the same Saturday.
