CLEMSON, S.C. - Mimi Land and Marlena Wesh collected three all-conference honors Saturday to lead Clemson's women to a ninth-place finish at the ACC Outdoor Championships in Chapel Hill, N.C. Land was named the ACC's Most Valuable Field Performer at the conclusion of the championships due to earning the most points. The Tiger men's team finished 11th to close out the 2014 conference championships.

Florida State swept the team titles, just as the Seminoles did during indoor season. FSU's men won by a three-point margin over host North Carolina, while the Seminole women were followed in second by Notre Dame and in third by Miami.

Clemson sends a small travel party to Philadelphia next week for the annual Penn Relays.

Saturday Notes
Mimi Land earned All-ACC honors in both the high jump and triple jump, duplicating her feat from indoor season. She now has five career all-conference accolades.
• Land set personal bests in both events, moving to second on Clemson's all-time performance list for the high jump (5-11.25) and ninth in the triple jump (41-8.75).
• Wesh won the silver medal in the women's 400 dash, her 14th career all-conference honor. She posted a time of 52.92, and later took fourth in the 200 dash (23.67).
Reggie Lewis was fourth in the men's 100 dash, clocking a 10.40 in the final.
James Plummer moved to third on Clemson's all-time performance list in the discus; he finished fifth Saturday with a mark of 177-8.
Natalie Anthony scored for the second straight ACC Outdoor Championships in the 5K; the New Jersey native posted a time of 16:29.83 and was sixth.
Iana Amsterdam and Anasterasia Terrell placed in the triple jump, giving the Tiger women three scorers in the event for the second time this season including the ACC Indoor Championships.
• The women's 4x400 relay was the top seed, but an injury to lead leg Whitney Fountain forced a DNF and ended Clemson's two-year reign in the event.
