CLEMSON, S.C. – It was a successful day closing out the Tiger Paw Invite for the Duke track & field team as four events broke into Duke’s top-five all-time records Saturday in Clemson, S.C. On the weekend, the Blue Devils came away with one school record, five events that rank among the Duke greats and 25 top-10 performances.

For the second day in a row, Miles Mingo etched his name among Duke’s finest as he posted the fourth-best time in school history in the 200m in a time of 21.94. Yesterday, Mingo clocked the fourth-best time in program history in the 400m.

On the women’s side in the 200m, Kelcie Simmons crossed the finish line in 24.17, good for the fourth-fastest time in Blue Devil history.

Kelcie Simmons teamed up with India Lowe, Brittany Aveni and MacKenzie Kerr to make up Duke’s top 4x400m relay squad. The women’s sprint squad placed 10th overall in 3:38.14 for the fifth-best time in Duke history. Additionally, the indoor split times for the quartet were all personal bests.

Rounding out Duke’s solid weekend in Clemson was Stefani Vukajlovic as she posted the second-best mark in Duke history in the weight throw competition, tossing the implement 18.50m to take 17th.

The Blue Devils will split time between the UCS Invite in Winston-Salem, N.C., and at the Virginia Tech Classic in Blacksburg, Va., next weekend.
