Two ACC Meet Records for Wolfpack Track Team


The NC State men broke a pair of ACC meet records at the conference indoor track & field championships in Boston tonight. Kris Kornegay-Gober cleared 7'3.75" in the high jump, which also broke the NC State school record.

The distance medley relay team of Bobby Moldovan, Daniel Fretz, Vibushan Sivakumaran, and Ryan Hill ran 9:40.05 to take three seconds off the meet record (and school record) set last year by the Wolfpack. Hill received the baton for the 1600-meter anchor leg in fourth, over five seconds behind leader Virginia, but ran 3:57.34 (about 3:59.0 for a mile) to win by three-and-half seconds. Earlier this season Hill became the first Wolfpack runner to break four minutes in the mile, and two weeks ago ran the fastest indoor time ever by an American collegiate runner in the 3000 meters. (Yes, that's as impressive as it sounds.) He will try to defend his ACC title in the 3000 tomorrow.

In other events, NC State got all-ACC performances from Karimah Shepherd in the women's long jump, Laura Hoer in the women's 5000, and Matt Sonnenfeldt in the men's 5000. Footballers Bryan Underwood (7.00) and C.J.Wilson (7.01) were 15th and 16th in the 60 meters and did not make the final. T.J. Graham ran in the 6.60-range last year, or about 4.5 yards ahead in a 65-yard race.

The NC State men are currently in second, with only the 35-pound weight throw still to go on the Friday schedule. (They generally don't do the weight throw while other events are going on, because, well, it's giants throwing a 35-pound metal ball.) State could end the night anywhere from first to third, but that really doesn't mean much, since qualifying in the sprints doesn't show up in the scoring, but really locks in a lot of points.
