Clemson, SC – Miller Moss leads the heptathlon after one day of competition at the JRF Multi-Event Challenge. The red-shirt freshman from Sumter, SC has a total of 2,929 points heading into day two. The final three events of the heptathlon will be held Saturday.

Joey O’Rourke (2,508) is seventh.

Moss got off to an outstanding start, turning in the top time of the 60m dash in 7.11 seconds. It was a personal best for the freshman, and earned him 844 points toward his total score on day one. Webb and O’Rourke both recorded a time of 7.34, while Feathers (7.55) was eighth-best in the event.

In the long jump, Moss continued his momentum with a season-best leap of 22’8″. In fact, it was the second-best mark of the entire season for the Tiger track & field program. Feathers had the second-best mark in the long jump (20’8.5″), while Webb (20’7″) was fourth in the event.

Feathers had the top mark in the shot put, posting a toss of 42’0.75″. He earned 656 points in the event. Moss was third in the shot put after a distance of 38’10.5″, while O’Rourke had a mark of 36’11.75″.

Webb used the high jump to his advantage late in the afternoon. The Oklahoma native and former All-State performer in the event cleared 6’4.25″, best among the 12 multi-event athletes. Moss came through in the clutch on the high jump as well, as he cleared two heights on his final attempt. He then easily went over 6’2″ on his first try.

The student-athletes return to action Saturday for the conclusion of the heptathlon. The 60m hurdles will be held at 11:00 AM, with the pole vault slated for 12:00 noon. The final event of the afternoon will be the 1000m run.
