Winslow Township grad Torie Robinson ran the fastest 100 of her life over the weekend, clocking a wind-aided 11.16 at the Texas Relays.
Robinson, a senior at Clemson, has a legal-wind PR of 11.31 from last year’s ACC championships at Georgia Tech. She matched that 11.31 in the trials at the Texas Relays.
Every 100 heat and final at this year’s Texas Relays was added by an illegal wind. Robinson’s 11.31 was aided by a 3.4 meters-per-second wind, and her 11.16 in the final was assisted by a 3.7 mps wind. Anything over 2.0 is considered wind-aided and is ineligible for all-time lists or record consideration.
Nonetheless, Robinson’s time equals the eighth-fastest under any conditions in NCAA Division 1 this year, according to the DirectAthletics data base, and is the fastest under any conditions in Clemson history. The official school record is 11.20, set in 2013 by Dezerea Bryant.
Including marks made in legal and wind-aided conditions, Robinson’s time is tied for 17th-fastest in the world this year and eighth-fastest among U.S. women.
Robinson was a Meet of Champions winner in the 55, 100 and intermediate hurdles during her brilliant career at Winslow.
