ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Top young Virgin Islands prospect, Lakeisha ‘Mimi’ Warner took her new surroundings at Clemson University completely in her stride as she took to the track during the Orange and Purple Classic on Saturday January 7, 2017.

Also on debut was the Tigers new Indoor Track, which has been constructed to be the fastest track in the USA and, like Warner, it didn’t disappoint in its debut as six total records were broken.

Five facility records fell on Saturday afternoon and altogether, there were nine competitors who finished with times better than the previous facility records. The women’s 200m, 300m and 500m were all topped as well as the men’s 200m and 300m.

On the women’s side, Olivia James and Rebekah Smith each turned in remarkable efforts on the track. James now owns the Clemson Indoor Track and Field Complex facility record in the 500 meter run after clocking in at 1:11.62 to win the event. Freshman, Lakeisha Warner wasn’t far behind in fifth at 1:13.36. 

In the 200m Warner finished 12th with a time of 25.34 and she also helped the 4 x 400m relay team to victory in 3:41.11, running the third leg.
