    DES MOINES, Iowa – NC State junior Ryan Hill of Hickory, N.C., was fastest of 12 qualifiers in the semifinals of the men’s 1,500 meters on Thursday during the second day of action at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Drake Stadium.

    Hill, who broke his own school record in the event earlier this year, nearly broke it again on Thursday evening, posting a time of 3:39.84 to edge Indiana’s Andrew Bayer. Hill will now advance with the 11 next fastest runners to Saturday afternoon’s finals.

    Junior Andie Cozzarelli of Apex, N.C., earned her second consecutive second-team All-America honor in the women’s 10,000 meters, finishing 11th overall in the late-night race on the campus of Drake University.

    Cozzarelli, a two-time All-ACC performer in both track and cross country, joins a select and accomplished group of Wolfpack women’s distance runners who have earned multiple All-America awards.

    Junior Kris Kornegay-Gober, the Washington, D.C., native participating in his first outdoor championships, finished tied for 21st in the men’s high jump, with a mark of 6-feet, 10 ¾-inches.



    On Friday, seniors Sandy Roberts and Bobby Moldovan will compete in the men’s 5,000 meters, while redshirt freshman Tremanisha Taylor will compete in her second event of the meet, the women’s shot put.
