Boling Leaps Indoor PR To Win Tiger Paw Invitational Long Jump Title

Matthew Boling set an indoor personal best of 7.76m to win the long jump at Clemson’s Tiger Paw Invitational on Friday.

Talented sprinter Matthew Boling recorded an indoor personal best of 7.76m to win the long jump at the Tiger Paw Invitational hosted at Clemson at the Clemson University Indoor Complex on Friday.

Boling, who will not compete in an open race this weekend, entered the meeting with an indoor best of 7.50m and he bettered that mark with a 7.55m jump in the third round, after fouling his opening two attempts.

The Georgia sophomore then stretched out to his winning effort of 7.76m (25-05.50) in the fourth round of the competition to take the lead before holding out for the victory, despite fouling his fifth attempt and jumping 7.54m in the sixth and final round.

KJ Moore of Virginia Tech was fourth with 7.53m and the top five was completed by Brandon Hicklin of North Carolina A&T with 7.39m.

Boling will remain a spectator at the meet until joining his teammates Elija Godwin, Caleb Cavanaugh, and Delano Dunkley to compete in the men’s 4x400m relay in the final race on Saturday.
