Brown also ran second leg for Clemson’s 4x100m relay team, which finished runner-up in the collegiate-level final. The group of Gwantaveus Anderson, Brown, Padgett, and Cowin Mills improved on their prelim time and ran a 40.30 on Saturday. In the 4x200m relay, the same group finished fifth in the finals with a time of 1:24.20.

Jason Bell had a season-best mark in the triple jump Saturday. The senior from Warner Robins, GA recorded a leap of 51’5.5″ and finished in third place in the championship flight. Mitch Greeley was runner-up in the pole vault championship after a clearance of 16’5″.
