CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - C.J. Spiller clocked a world-best 6.58 and won the 60m
dash title at the Carolina Classic to pace the men?s track & field team
Saturday.

Spiller?s time ranks just ahead of the 6.59 run by professional
sprinter Leonard Scott, also on Saturday. It was a personal best for the
sophomore two-sport star.

Spiller ran a 6.69 in the prelims, and then ran away from the field in the
final with his time of 6.58. The time ranks fourth in school history in
the 60m dash, quite an accomplishment considering Clemson?s decorated
history of sprinters. His time also ranks as a facility record at the
Eddie Smith Field House.

Travis Padgett finished second in the 200m dash after clocking a
season-best 21.91 in the event. Trenton Guy placed fourth (22.00), while
Corey Brown (22.40) was ninth overall. Brown teamed with Cowin Mills,
Andrew Porter, and Travis Swaggard in finishing third in the 4x400m relay
(3:17.85).

Alex Padgett finished ninth in the invitational shot put with a mark of
51?9.25?, while Stephen White placed eighth (46?2?) in the second section
of the event. Scott Pauga (6?6?) was 10th in the high jump.


Clemson will return to action next weekend to take part in the Virginia
Tech Elite Meet in Blacksburg, VA.
