Clemson, SC – Regional qualifier George Fields will lead a small squad of competitors from the men’s track & field team Saturday at the Solid Orange Classic, a meet hosted by the Clemson women’s program.

The meet gets underway at 10:00 AM Saturday at the Rock Norman Track. The first action for Bob Pollock’s team will be the hammer throw.

Brandon Carter, a freshman from Shelby, NC, is entered for the Tigers.

Kendall Millhouse, a freshman from Summerville, SC, will compete in Saturday’s 100m and 200m dash. The 100m prelims are scheduled for 11:00 AM, with the final set for 1:20 PM. The 200m dash will be at 2:30 Saturday afternoon.

A host of student-athletes will run the 1500m for Clemson on Saturday, led by red-shirt sophomore Sam Bryfczynski. He owns the team’s best time in that event this season. Joining him on Saturday will be a trio of freshmen – Matt Bruce, Matt Hughes, and Tyler Morey. The 1500m race is slated for noon.

Jasen Turnbull looks to improve on his season-best time in the 800m. He turned out a time of 1:55.92 at Auburn last weekend in the event, and will compete at 1:40 PM Saturday.
