M. Track & Field Leads ACC Championships
The NC State men's track and field team leads the ACC Outdoor Championships heading into the final day of competition in Atlanta, Ga. A day after Stephen Furst won the 10,000m, NC State racked up numerous All-ACC honors with top-3 finishes on top of having three athletes advance to finals on Saturday. Tibor Vegh led a trio of Wolfpack finishers with a second place showing in the steeplechase, and ACC Indoor Champion Dexter Adams finished second in the long jump to earn All-ACC accolades to lead the Pack.
Vegh finished second and John Martinez was third in the steeplechase to earn All-ACC honors and set NCAA Regional Marks. Gavin Coombs was fourth, as he hit a NCAA Regional Mark, as well. All three athletes are now ranked on the top-10 Wolfpack performers lists all-time in the event.
Adams was second in the long jump with a distance of 25'09.25", his outdoor personal-best, to earn All-ACC honors. Adams won the ACC Indoor long jump title earlier this year and finished sixth nationally to earn All-America accolades.
Jason Jones finished fourth in the shot put (57'01.50") and Eric Davis was sixth in the high jump (6'07.00"), a season-high for the Wolfpack in the event.
Kevin Hutton was third in the prelims of the 400m hurdles to advance to Saturday's final, while Reggie Reese and A'Tolani Akinkuotu will advance to finals in the 100m.
