CLEMSON, S.C. (Feb. 9) – The Clemson track and field program is set to host the 2023 Tiger Paw Invitational which will be held at the Clemson Indoor Track and Field Complex on Friday, Feb. 10- Saturday, Feb 11.
This marks Clemson’s sixth meet of the season, and the team is hitting their stride just two weeks before the ACC Championship Meet in Louisville, Ky. beginning on Feb. 23. Read More: How to watch the Tyson Invitational 2023?
This will be Clemson’s biggest meet of the regular season, featuring over 30 teams, many of which ranked in the top-25 on both the men’s and women’s sides.
“Tiger Paw of course, in my opinion, is one of the best indoor meets in the world,” said Program Director Mark Elliott. “This particular weekend in the NCAA indoor season serves as the pre-championship meets. We are just two weeks from championship season, so to have a meet this big is perfect timing.”
At last week’s Doc Hale VT Meet the men’s 4×400 meter relay team of Theron Bradford, DeAndre Anderson, Daniel Kidd and Jevon Williams won the event with a time of 3:13.35.
On the women’s side Madelyn Dinneen (4:57.20), Grace Hanratty (5:00.80) and Meredith Finley (5:02.47) all set personal bests in the mile.
Along with Mercy Ntia-Obong setting a personal best in the 60 meter dash, completing the race in 7.51 seconds. That was the fastest time in the prelims, and she went on to finish fourth in the finals.
Marie Forbes continued to shine in the weight throw, launching 21.87 meters. While Ryan John finished third in the triple jump with a 14.98 meter leap, a personal best.
