    GREENVILLE, S.C./CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Andrew Colley set a new NC State school record in the men's outdoor one mile run with a time of 3:59.34 at the Blue Shoes Elite Mile on Saturday, at the Irwin Belk Track Complex for Track and Field and Kelsey-West Track in Greenville, S.C.

    Colley's run is the first official outdoor sub-4:00 mile in the history of NC State track and field, breaking the previous record of 4:00.05, set in 1973 by Jim Wilkins. NC State's Ryan Hill recorded a time of 3:56.78 in the outdoor mile at the 2012 Morton Games in Dublin, Ireland, an annual international track and field meeting. However, Colley is the first person in program history to record a sub-4:00 mile in an official event during the outdoor season.

    Wolfpack redshirt sophomore Graham Crawford, also competing in the Blue Shoes Elite Mile with Colley, finished with a personal best time of 4:00.01, the second-fastest ever recorded in NC State program history.

    Members of the Wolfpack rack and field team also competed in the Joe Hilton Invitational on Saturday in Chapel Hill, N.C. Elizabeth Shuman highlighted one of eight top three finishes on the night with a first place showing in the women's high jump.

    NC State will now prepare for the ACC Outdoor Championships to be held at the Irwin Belk Track at Fetzer Field in Chapel Hill. The three day event is set to begin on Thursday, April 17.
