Athletic Highlights: Kendrick captured her first individual ACC championship in the 60m dash last week at the 2011 ACC Indoor Track & Field Championships in Blacksburg, VA. The sophomore out of Gastonia, NC had a time of 7.28 in the final. Kendrick's short sprint win was Clemson's first in the event since Simone Tomlinson in 1998. Kendrick was runner-up in the 200m dash, recording her top indoor performance in the event, as she turned out a time of 23.29. Her time is No. 2 on Clemson's all-time list. Clemson closed out the meet in the same fashion as it did last winter, by winning the 4x400m relay. The team of Briana Rollins, Kendrick, Sonni Austin and Marlena Wesh produced a season-best time of 3:37.26 to edge North Carolina for the championship. It marks the first time the Clemson women have won back-to-back ACC crowns in the 4x400m relay since the 1997-98 era. Kendrick was named the MVP of track events for the meet.
