T&F: Clemson Sets Eight Top-10 Marks in Final Home Meet of Indoor Season

CLEMSON, S.C. — The Tiger Paw Invitational was the stage for an enthralling weekend of track and field action. The two-day meet saw NCAA records break and eight Clemson top-10 all-time marks set. The weekend was highlighted by Devon Brooks breaking the school record in the 60 meter hurdle with his time of 7.56. Daniel Cope also set a school record in the weight throw, breaking his previous mark and launching a herculean 20.43m toss.

“To me this was the biggest and best meet in the country this weekend” said Program Director Mark Elliott. “For our team to perform at that level at this meet shows that we are definitely coming together for the ACC Championships. I am proud of everyone. Of course, coaches are going to look for something to be better but this is our best weekend yet.”

The meet featured many of the best teams in the country notching impressive times on Clemson’s noteworthy track. The Tigers end their home-stretch on the Clemson track & field complex optimistic and focused as they have a little over a week for final preparations heading into ACC Championships at Virginia Tech from February 24-26.
