At Clemson University, Tyrell Cuffy placed fourth in the 100 metres in 10.43 seconds, as winner Travis Padgett of the host school sped to a 9.96secs victory – fastest collegiate time in the United States this season and second fastest time in the world this year.

He also clocked 21.77secs for the 200m.

Carl placed second in the long jump with 7.82 metres and Carlos third with a 7.61m leap as both upped their regional qualifying marks in that event.

Carl won the triple jump with a regional qualifying mark of 15.75 metres with Carlos sixth at 14.68m.

In the javelin throw, it was Carlos with a regional qualifying toss of 63.51 metres and Carl sixth with his 56.87m.

In the 100 metre relay, Carlos ran the second leg and Carl the third as the Blue Raider quartet finished in second place at 40.53 seconds – yet another regional qualifying mark.
