    BLACKSBURG, Va. - Sophomore Ryan Hill won his first event of the indoor track and field season Friday night at the Virginia Tech Elite Meet at Rector Field House, blazing to a 4:02.33 time in the mile run. It's the fastest time by an ACC runner this year and one of the top 10 fastest times in the country this season.

    Hill, a three-time All-American in cross country and track, had not raced since finishing 22nd in the 2010 NCAA Cross Country Championship on Nov. 22. But he was the Wolfpack's most decorated runner last season, winning an ACC championship in the 10,000 meters and breaking the school record in both the 1,500 meters and the 5,000 meters.

    He was seventh at the NCAA Outdoor Championships in the 5,000 meters to earn All-American honors and was ninth in the 1,500 meters at the USA Track & Field Outdoor Championships.

    Friday evening, a trio of NC State women finished five-six-seven in the women's mile run, led by Andie Cozzarelli's 4:56.46, followed by Kenyetta Iyevbele and Kara McKenna.

    Wolfpack sprinter T.J. Graham had the second fastest preliminary time in the 60-meter dash at 6.77 seconds and was third in finals in a time of 6.67 seconds behind Florida's Jeff Demps and Terrell Wilks.

    Tiayonna Blackmon was second in 800 meter run with a time of 2:13.99. Junior Emmanuel Davis was fourth in the long jump at 23-feet, 7 ¼ inches.

    The event concludes with a full slate of action on Saturday, beginning at 11 a.m.
