Clemson, SC – Miller Moss fell just short of an NCAA qualifying mark, but scored enough points to win the heptathlon title at the JRF Multi-Event Challenge. It marks the first time the heptathlon title has been claimed by a Clemson men’s athlete in the five-year history of the meet.

Moss’ time in the high hurdles was 8.95, seventh-best among the competitors. He again showed his ability to battle after clearing two pole vault heights on his final attempt. He eventually ended up with a personal best clearance of 14’1.25″.
Mike Feathers finished second in the heptathlon with 4,979 points. The red-shirt junior was solid throughout the competition. He was third in the 60m hurdles after posting a time of 8.59. Feathers also ran 2:50.22 in the 1000m run to close out strong on the final day of competition.
