    RALEIGH, N.C. – The NC State track and field team will open its 2014 outdoor season, Mar. 21-22, at the Carolina Relays in Chapel Hill, N.C. The meet, hosted by UNC at the Fetzer Field/Belk Track, will also feature ACC foes Duke and Pittsburgh along with East Carolina, Temple and unattached individual competitors.

    Wolfpack throwers Nicole Chavis and Tremanisha Taylor are coming off a pair of All-American performances last weekend at the NCAA Indoor Championships in Albuquerque, N.M.

    Chavis launched a personal-best and NC State indoor record of 69’08.00” in the weight throw to finish in sixth-place and earn first-team All-American honors. Taylor took home a second-team All-American award in the shot put with a 12th-place finish. Taylor's throw of 52'11.00" placed highest among the Atlantic Coast Conference competitors in the field of 16, and gave the Henderson, N.C. native the second All-American honor of her career.

    Overall, NC State took part in 12 indoor meets on the year, earning a total of 52 first-place finishes, including 31 on the women's side and 21 on the men's side.
