Athletic Highlights: Spear cleared a height of 17'2.25", his personal best and an NCAA provisional qualifying height, to win the event at the Tiger Paw Invitational. The Hoover, AL native attempted to clear the next height as well, but cramped up during his approach and did not vault. Spear now ranks third on Clemson's all-time indoor pole vault list behind Eric Lander and Mitch Greeley.
