Taylor Earns ACC Performer of the Week Honors
April 30, 2013
GREENSBORO, N.C. - NC State thrower Tremanisha Taylor has been named ACC Women's Track and Field Co-Performer of the Week as announced Tuesday by the league office.
Taylor shared the weekly honor with Florida State's Amanda Winslow.
A redshirt sophomore, Taylor won the women's shot put at the prestigious Penn Relays in Philadelphia, Pa., last weekend. The Henderson, N.C., native recorded a season-best 53' 11.75" (16.45m) heave in the event to top all other competitors, and pushed herself into the top 20 in the NCAA rankings this season. The mark was also the third-best among ACC throwers during the outdoor campaign. Taylor also added a ninth-place showing in the discus throw at the Penn Relays.
The Wolfpack will next compete April 30 in Durham, N.C., at the Duke Twilight meet.
