For the second consecutive week, redshirt junior Nathaniel Williams won the men’s discus with a 179’ 6.00” heave, while Jule Rich recorded a fifth-place finish (170’ 6.00”) and Grant Pearce took seventh place (160’ 5.00”). Williams was victorious in the discus at last weekend’s UCF Invitational, where he tied his season best with a 180’ 2.00” throw.
Junior Elizabeth Shuman took top honors in the women’s high jump, while tying her personal best with a 5’ 10.75” leap over the bar in her first outdoor competition of the season.
The Wolfpack recorded a 1-2 finish in section two of the women’s high jump, where senior Danielle Adams claimed the top spot with a 5’ 7.00” hop over the horizontal bar and Perry took second with a 5’ 5.00” jump.
NC State recorded one more sweep of the top two spots in the women’s 3,000-meter steeplechase where senior Erin Mercer and redshirt junior Samantha Norman left the rest of the field behind, en route to a 1-2 finish. Mercer finished the race in 10:28.42, while Norman was close behind at 10:30.70. The next finisher crossed the finish line 11 seconds after Norman.
Redshirt senior Brian Himelright was just as strong in the men’s 3,000-meter steeplechase, hustling his way to a first-place finish with a time of 8:56.25.
Redshirt sophomore Tremanisha Taylor’s streak of five-straight shot put victories came to an end, but the Henderson, N.C., native was able to grab a second-place finish with a 51’ 0.25” toss.
Junior Kris Kornegay-Gober competed in the men’s high jump for the first time this outdoor season and leaped 7’ 0.50” for a third-place standing.
As the sun went down, so did several track records, as Ravenscroft High School senior Wesley Frazier shattered the Girls’ 3,200-meter mark with a 9:57.70 time. Frazier crossed the finish line more than 39 seconds faster than the second-place finisher and obliterated the track record by a jaw-dropping 24 seconds.
The women’s 5,000-meter record was broken by nearly one second, as Zap Fitness’ Sarah Crouch clocked a 15:58.36 time to win the race.
Competition for the final day of the Raleigh Relays will begin at 9:30 a.m., Saturday, March 30, at the Paul H. Derr Track.
