Hemmings, who is the fourth fastest Jamaican this season in the event, moved into third place on the Clemson all-time performance list with her winning time of 8.12 seconds. It is also the fastest time by a Tiger since Keni Harrison’s 8.13 during the 2013 ACC Indoor Championships.

Entering Friday’s competition, Hemmings’ time of 8.12 ranks No. 4 in the NCAA.

Her time improved her previous personal best of 8.29, set on Jan. 9.

After finishing second to Destinee Rocker (8.13) in the heats with a time of 8.31, Hemmings returned to turn the tables on the American in the final.

“Trishauna is getting better each meet, and running 8.31 in the prelims shows that she’s learning how to run with the competition and compete when it matters in the finals,” said Mark Elliott, the Clemson Director of Track & Field and Cross Country.

“In talking with Coach Lennox [Graham], there’s still a lot more to come. She’s a consummate performer and continues to go in the right direction.”

Rocker finished second in the final in 8.15 seconds with another American, Tiara McMinn running 8.20 for third place, the same time as Jamaica’s Jeanine Williams.
