Clemson, SC- Pole vaulter Chris Spear led the Clemson track & field teams Saturday as the Tiger Paw Invitational came to a close. Spear cleared a height of 17’2.25″, his personal best and an NCAA provisional qualifying height.

The Hoover, AL native attempted to clear the next height as well, but cramped up during his approach and did not vault. He easily won the event. Spear is now third on Clemson’s all time indoor pole vault list behind Eric Lander (17’5.75″ in 1995) and Mitch Greeley (18’1″ in 2008).

The men’s 4x400m relay team came in second with a time of 3:18, their fastest time this season. The team consisted of Miller Moss, Travis Swaggard, Will Noble, and Trenton Guy.
