Greeley Earns All-America Honors at NCAA Indoor Championships

March 10, 2006

Fayetteville, AR – Clemson’s men’s track & field performer Brent Hobbs stands ninth overall and Ryan Koontz is 15th.

Greeley cleared 17’6.5″ and tied for eighth in the pole vault, earning his first All-America honor as a Tiger. In the last month, he also claimed his first ACC Championship in the event. He was the first Clemson athlete ever to compete in the indoor pole vault, and he won the All-America honor in his first attempt.

Red-shirt freshman Corey Brown competed on Friday for Clemson in the 60m dash, but did not advance to Saturday’s final after recording a time of 6.81.

Hobbs totaled 3,070 points on the first day, while Koontz is at 2,773. In the 60m hurdles, the first event of the heptathlon, Hobbs was seventh-fastest with a time of 7.18 seconds, while Koontz was ninth overall in 7.24. In the long jump, Hobbs posted a mark of 22’9.75″ and Koontz was able to hit 18’11.25″. Hobbs’ top event of the day was the shot put, where he had a toss of 45’9.75″, which was fifth-best among the multi-event athletes. Koontz threw 42’4″ in the shot put. In the final heptathlon event of the day, Koontz cleared 6’5.5″ and Hobbs cleared 6’3.25″ in the high jump.

The Tigers return to action on Saturday, March 11 to conclude competition at the NCAA Championships. Hobbs and Koontz will wrap up the heptathlon beginning at 11:00 AM, while Adam Linkenauger will compete in the high jump at 4:45 PM.
