Clemson’s Rick Hill Finishes In The Top 20 In The 2004 NCAA Championship Decathlon

June 12, 2004

AUSTIN, TX – The Clemson men’s track and field team concluded competition at the 2004 NCAA Outdoor Championships on Saturday at the Mike A. Myers Stadium on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. The Tigers’ Rick Hill finished 20th in the decathlon, scoring 7,012 points. The senior from Chapel Hill, NC, overcame a foot injury to complete the two-day, 10-event competition.

On Saturday, Hill recorded a time of 14.97 in the 110m hurdles then recorded a mark of 131’7″ in the discus. He cleared 14’9″ in the pole vault, just shy of his career-best effort of 15’1″. In the javelin throw, Hill posted a mark of 140’6″, then finished the meet with a time of 4:32.40 in the 1500m run, his second-fastest time in that event. He concludes his Clemson career with the fourth-best point total in Tiger decathlon history (7,327 points) and as the Tigers’ all-time leader in the heptathlon indoor. He was a two-time ACC Champion in the decathlon (2003, 2004) and advanced to the NCAA Championships in the decathlon both years.
