    ROXBURY, Mass. – Another race, another record for NC State distance runner Ryan Hill.

    The junior from Hickory, N.C., won the 3,000 meter run on Saturday at the Reggie Lewis Track Center for his second career individual title and his fourth overall title at the ACC Indoor Track and Field Championships.

    He also became the third NC State entry this weekend to set a new meet record in route to a title, following junior Kris Kornegay-Gober’s win in the high jump and the Hill-anchored win by the distance medley relay team on Friday night.

    Those victories propelled the Wolfpack men to a sixth-place finish in the team competition with 61 points.  The Wolfpack women, with All-ACC performances on Saturday by senior Lawanda Henry and redshirt freshman Laura Hoer, finished seventh with 47 points.

    Kornegay-Gober was named the ACC Championship Field Most Valuable Performer for breaking the meet’s second-oldest record with his 7-feet, 3 ¾-inch leap in the high jump on Friday.

    Hill’s run of 8:00.70 broke the meet record set in 1999 by Wake Forest’s Nolan Swanson by nearly three seconds, though it did not challenge the overall ACC record of 7:43.08 Hill set earlier this season at the Flotrack Husky Classic in Seattle. Teammates Bobby Moldovan and Matt Sonnenfeldt finished fifth and sixth, respectively, to give the Wolfpack 17 total points in the event.

    Hill now has two career victories in the 3,000 meters at the indoor championships. He has also been a part of two DMR championships in his three indoor seasons, anchoring the teams in 2011 and ’12 that set the meet records.

    He will take next weekend off to prepare for the NCAA Indoor Championships on March 9-10 in Nampa, Idaho. Other Wolfpack athletes will have a final chance to hit NCAA qualifying marks in the Virginia Tech Final Qualifier next weekend in Blacksburg, Va.

    For the Wolfpack women, Henry had her best throw of the season at 51-feet, 10 ½-inches to finish second in the shot put for her fourth consecutive All-ACC award.

    Hoer, running in her first indoor conference meet, won her second all-conference award by finishing third in the women’s 3,000 meters. Teammate Joanna Thompson was close behind, finishing fifth. Hoer also won All-ACC honors on Friday in the 5,000 meters.
