Between swimming and track, NC State has lately earned a rep as a school that produces great sprinters. The track and field team has drawn quite as much attention as the swim team, but that might change if they keep producing results like this one:
NC State won that relay event by more than a second, which in track terms might as well have been a half decade. They destroyed that field.
This is probably one of the few circumstances where Nyheim Hines’ speed is not incredibly impressive. He is elite-level fast, but he was not a closer on this relay team. Freshman Cravont Charleston, who (I’m pretty sure) anchored the relay, also won the ACC title in both the 100m and 200m. It is tough to do that.
NC State speed.
On a related note, do you remember this kickoff return by Nyheim last year? He hit the jets about the 20-yard line and it was over.
