May 12, 2013
GREENSBORO, N.C. – Redshirt sophomore Tremanisha Taylor swept the women’s shot put and discus competitions for the second time this season, as the NC State track & field team concluded its regular season Sunday afternoon at the Aggie Last Chance Qualifier at North Carolina A&T University.
Taylor, who won the women’s shot put and discus at the season-opening 49er Classic in Charlotte Mar. 14-16, accomplished the feat once again on Sunday with a 163’ (49.69m) discus throw and a 50’ 2.75” (15.31m) toss in the shot put.
Senior Jazueline Daniels also turned in a first-place performance while tying her career-best in the women’s triple jump with a 41’ 10.00” (12.75m) leap into the sand pit.
Redshirt junior Nathaniel Williams finished first in the men’s discus for the fourth time this season after his 172’ 2.00” (52.48m) heave. Williams also won the event at the UCF Invitational, Raleigh Relays and Duke Invitational.
The Wolfpack will have an 11-day break to catch its breath before its next competition, May 23-25, when a number of qualified athletes will compete at the 2013 NCAA East Regional in Greensboro, N.C.
