TURLOCK, Calif. - Tiffin University pole vaulter Lee Miller claimed seventh Saturday at the NCAA Division II Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Cal State Stanislaus.
The junior, a Bellevue graduate, cleared 16-2 to gain All-American status.
"He's definitely somebody who steps up in big competition," TU coach Jeremy Croy said of Miller, He just missed 16-7 in his last two attempts. He took some great stabs at it."
