    Pack Track Athletes Compete in Last-Chance Qualifiers

    March 3, 2012

    RALEIGH, N.C. - NC State senior Lawanda Henry had the longest throw in the women's shot put at the High Tide Last Chance meet at the CrossPlex Indoor Arena in Birmingham, Ala., though it fell short of her best toss of the season.

    Henry, who hit a mark of 47-feet, 4 ½-inches, was one of several Wolfpack athletes competing in three different last-chance meets on Saturday, hoping to hit automatic qualifying marks for next weekend's NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships in Nampa, Idaho.

    Junior Karimah Shepherd was third in the women's long jump at the Virginia Tech Last Chance Qualifier with a leap of 19-feet, 8-3/4-inches. In the men's triple jump, senior Kwame Boatwright hit a mark of 49-feet, 1 ½-inches to finish fifth, followed by freshman Rueben Malone in 11th.

    Both junior Tiayonna Blackmon and sophomore Kenyetta Iyevbele finished in the top three of the women's 800 meters, with Blackmon taking second in 2:08.89 and Iyevbele third at 2:08.94.

    In the men's 800 meters, freshman Vibushan Sivakumarant was fifth.

    At the Armory Track in New York City, senior Bobby Moldovan was 25th in the men's one-mile run, with a time of 4:09.23.

    Wolfpack junior Ryan Hill, who set the ACC and NC State record in the 3,000 meters earlier in the season, has already qualified for the indoor championships with an automatic qualifying mark, while junior Kris Kornegay-Gober has the eighth-best jump in the nation.
