 While competing in the New Balance Outdoor Nationals on Saturday River Bluff’s own DJ (Desmond) Ledell set won the national title in the the boys triple jump.
Ledell, a Clemson commit, successfully jumped 50 feet six inches to claim the title. His winning distance was the same as Chris Brown of Hanrahan, SC in 2011 but Brown’s was wind-aided. Ledell was three inches away from making the top 10 all-time list in the triple jump event in the New Balance nationals.
Ledell won for state titles while at River Bluff as well. It looks like Clemson found themselves a star.

Ledell is a 4 time state triple jump champion and 2017 long jump champion for South Carolina.
