Coming into the season, her 200 PR was a 24.13 indoors at the ACC indoor championships at South Bend this past winter and her outdoor PR was a 24.56 in a meet at Auburn last spring.

Robinson also anchored Clemson’s second-place 400-meter relay team, which ran 43.64, so she had a hand in 18 of Clemson’s 95 points in the meet. Clemson placed fourth but only 29 points behind first-place Virginia Tech.
