Always Some Good News

From GoPack:

With her throw of 69'08.00", NC State sophomore Nicole Chavis finished in sixth-place in the women's weight throw at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships in Albuquerque, N.M. on Friday, becoming the first student-athlete in program history to earn first-team All-American honors in the indoor weight throw.

The Lumberton, N.C. native launched a personal-best and NC State indoor record throw, breaking her previous indoor record set two weeks ago at the Atlantic Coast Conference Championships. She also finished tops amongst the ACC competitors in the field of 16, while also garnering the highest finish of the weight throwers with the class distinction of sophomore.

"I'm really proud of the indoor season that I had this year," Chavis said. "Coach Tom Wood and I have worked endlessly trying to adjust to different throwing rings and how my throw has changed in itself. To finish in sixth and become a first-team All-American is a dream come true. My parents, my coaches, and many others had more faith in me than I had at times. To become the first All-American in the indoor weight throw at NC State is such an honor. I hope to make my parents, coaches and NC State community even more proud in the years to come."
