CLEMSON, S.C. – The Duke track & field program opened the first day of competition at the Tiger Paw Invite in Clemson, S.C., Friday and came away with one school record, one time that ranks among the Duke greats and 14 top-10 performances.

For the second time this season, senior India Lowe posted a school-record performance. Lowe clocked in at 7.44 in the qualifying heats of the 60m for an eighth-place finish. Lowe’s time currently ranks 11th in the conference and is an ACC qualifying time.

Also posting a top-five performance was Miles Mingo in the 400m as he finished 10th in 48.22, good for the fourth-fastest time in Duke history.

Both the men’s and women’s distance squads saw success Friday in Clemson, highlighted by Cole Hoff's first-place finish in the 5000m in 14:52.42 while the women swept second through fourth place. Amanda Beach made her Duke 5000m debut along with Helen Williams as the two placed second and third, respectively. Beach clocked in at 17:11.46 followed by Williams in 17:11.78. Lindsay Billings rounded out the solid distance performances in fourth with a personal-best time of 17:14.33.

Several Blue Devils posted personal bests today including members of the vault squad. Nati Sheppard and Chesney Ward tied for fifth place with a clearance of 3.98m as Sheppard’s was a PR.
