The Clemson track and field team will begin its season on Dec. 8 when it hosts the Clemson opener.

In just a few short weeks, Clemson track and field will be back in action for its winter indoor season beginning on Dec. 8.

Clemson is set to host four home meets and will travel to Virginia Tech and Texas A&M for its away meets. Come February, the Tigers will travel to Boston for the ACC Championship.

The Clemson Opener will take place Friday, Dec. 8, when multiple schools are invited to register their teams to compete in the non-conference events.

After winter break, Clemson will host its invitational on Jan. 12-13. The following weekend, the Tigers will travel to the Ted Nelson Invitational at Texas A&M on Saturday, Jan. 20. Clemson will then close out January by hosting the two-day Bob Pollock Invitational at home on Jan. 26-27.

Virginia Tech’s VT Challenge, slotted for Feb. 2-3, will expose Clemson to most of its ACC opponents. While times at specific qualifying events are what punches their ticket to the championships, racing and competing against their conference will be vital in keeping the Tigers ready for the ACC Championship on Feb. 22-24.

Fans will have one more opportunity to see Clemson in action at home in the Tiger Paw Invite Feb. 9-10 to close out the indoor season.

In August, Mark Elliott, director of track and field, agreed to extend his contract through 2025 after he was named 2023 ACC Men’s Outdoor Track and Field Coach of the Year. Elliott notably led his Tigers to their first outdoor men’s conference title since 2004.

Tevin Hester, a Clemson sprinting alumnus, was declared as the newest addition to the coaching staff on Nov. 6 after spending three years at Pittsburgh. As a short sprinters coach, the nine-time ACC All-American is expected to further push the program in its upcoming indoor season thanks to his extensive experience.

With plenty of opportunities for the team to showcase its talent this winter, fans should be on the lookout for the Tigers all season long.
