Ranking Daniel Alumna Laurie Barton's Record 1K

Daniel alumna Laurie Barton took the lead from the gun in the women's 1K on Friday night and never looked back, as the redshirt-senior from Clemson set a new school record of 2:42.51 at the Hokie Invitational.

Where does it rank?

Barton's time places her in a tie for 12th on the collegiate all-time indoor list and makes her the third-fastest woman ever from the ACC.

Clemson's previous record for the women's 1K was 2:43.03 set by Natoya Goule in 2015. Later that season, Goule would go on to capture the NCAA Indoor 800-meter title, setting the school record in the event by running 2:01.64.

"She [Laurie] hit her splits and she finished so strong, and to break a school record previously held by an NCAA Champion and Olympian [was special]," said Director of Track & Field Mark Elliott. "She is a pleasure to coach!"
