Five members of Clemson’s indoor track and field team competed in the National Championship this past weekend.

Five Clemson athletes participated in Friday’s indoor track and field national championship in Birmingham, Alabama.  

Daniel Cope, Aman Thornton, Devon Brooks, Lafranz Campbell and Giano Roberts represented the Tigers during Nationals. 

To start things off, weight thrower Daniel Cope, who in the previous meet shot 22.28 meters to crown him as Jamaican national record holder in this event, threw for 20.71 meters which placed him 15th in the nation. 

As for Thornton, he fell short of finishing the 800-meter race due to injury.  

In the 60-meter hurdles, Clemson was able to get back. Both Campbell and Brooks came in hot after they both ran it in 7.72 seconds. Roberts finished in 7.77 seconds in a separate heat than the others. 

With these times, Campbell and Brooks came in ninth and tenth. Roberts came in 11th. 

Despite Clemson having numerous top 16 finishes, they were unable to qualify for finals on Saturday. 

This weekend, the Clemson track and field team will debut in its first outdoor track meet of the season at Georgia Tech, March 18-19.
