CLEMSON, S.C. - Jordan Banks finished eighth in the pentathlon and the men's distance medley relay crossed the line seventh in the first day of competition at the ACC Indoor Track and Field Championships on Thursday.

Banks totaled a career-high 3659 points throughout the pentathlon's five events en route to the eighth-place finish. Last season, Banks finished 13th in the event at ACC Indoors with 3121 points. She increased her point total to 3614 at the Navy Invitational earlier this season before improving again on Thursday.

In the first event of the day, Banks finished sixth in the 60m hurdles with a time of 8.89. She matched the career high that she set on the same track earlier this season at the Clemson Bob Pollock Invitational.

She then finished 11th in the high jump after clearing 1.54m (5-6) and ninth in the shot put with a best throw of 9.59m (31-5.75). In the fourth event, Banks finished fifth in the long jump with a career-best mark of 5.73m (18-9.75). She replaced the 5.68m (18-7.75) mark she jumped at the Music City Challenge earlier this season.

Banks capped her pentathlon competition by running a personal-best time of 2:22.59 in the 800m.

Holly Hankenson, a junior from Louisville, won the event with 4175 points while Michelle Atherley and Amy Taintor of Miami claimed second and third.

In the men's distance medley relay, the Demon Deacons finished seventh with a season-best time of 9:45.87. The team, consisting of Angelos Vasileiou, Kaleb Bryant, Dakota Greenwalt and Sebastian Fischbach, ran the fastest DMR by the Wake Forest men in two seasons.
