CLEMSON, SC – Miller Moss established a school record in the heptathlon Saturday and was just 22 points shy of an automatic NCAA qualifying total at the Clemson Games. Moss totaled 5,653 points and broke former All-American Ryan Koontz’ three-year old school record in the multi-event competition.
Once again, Moss got off to a great start by easily surpassing his previous best in the 60m hurdles. The Sumter, SC product had a time of 8.28, best among the field of eight competitors. He continued his momentum with a clutch performance in the pole vault, as he cleared a personal best 15’1″ on his final attempt. He finished strong as well, turning in a time of 2:49.48 in the 1000m run.
Brianna Rollins was one of three female sprinters from Clemson to post an NCAA provisional qualifying time in the 200m dash. Rollins won the event with a 24.17, holding off teammate Kristine Scott (24.34) in the opening heat. Jasmine Edgerson claimed the second heat and was third overall with a time of 24.39, followed by Stormy Kendrick (24.41) in fourth.

The women’s group of Jordan Rispress, Jackson, Fraser, and Spencer Adams took first place with a time of 3:18.44. Adams regained the lead over the final 300 meters, just moments after being cut off by another runner.
