    GREENSBORO, N.C. – NC State sophomore Alexis Perry earned ACC Women’s Track and Field Performer of the Week honors while Wolfpack senior Andrew Colley was named the ACC Men’s Track and Field Co-Performer of the Week as announced by the Atlantic Coast Conference on Tuesday.

    A native of Durham, N.C., Perry posted marks that rank among the nation’s top 15 in the long jump and 100m hurdles during last weekend’s Raleigh Relays. Perry's leap of 21'02.00" (6.45m) topped Karimah Shepherd's previous school record mark of 21'01.25" as the best women's outdoor long jump of all-time at NC State. Perry’s jump of 21’02.00” is the second longest mark registered in outdoor event in 2014.

    Perry also finished in first place in the 100-meter hurdles with a personal best time of 13.39 after finishing first in the qualifying heat, which featured 116 competitors. That mark places her 13th in the country.

    Colley, running in his final Raleigh Relays, set a personal best in the men's 1,500 meters with a blazing time of 3:44.21, making up three spots on the final lap to jump from fourth place to cross the finish line in first place.

    The Williamsburg, Va., native’s time stands as the fourth-best time in the nation in the men’s 1,500 meters this season and the fastest time in the ACC in the event in 2014.

    Georgia Tech junior Broderick Snoddy was also named as Co-Performer of the Week along with Colley.
