Wakefield's Veronica Fraley announced her college commitment last night as will be attending Clemson next fall!
As a junior Fraley lead the state in the Shot Put, Discus and Hammer Throw with PRs of 47-9.25, 133-4 and 170-4 respectively. Fraley was the runner up in the NCHSAA 4A Outdoor Shot Put and Discus and well as the NCHSAA 4A Indoor Shot Put. She has also been one of the states top throwers throughout her high school career.

Fraley said "I chose Clemson because I felt at home! They treat me like I'm one of their own already, academically and athletically. Everyone there is amazing and the entire campus is beautiful! I'm so excited to be a tiger!!"
Fraley has been one of the best throwers in state history sitting as she holds the state record in the Discus at 170-4 from USATF JO's in Lawrence, Kansas this summer. She also sits at NC#4 All-Time with her 47-9.25 from NC USATF JO's in Greensboro this summer. Fraley is the #3 Discus returner in the US and the top shot put returner as she'll look to bring home some state and national titles this fall. Clemson is certainly getting a special talent coming there way next fall.
