    BLACKSBURG, Va. – The NC State track & field team posted a plethora of top-five performances Saturday afternoon, as the Wolfpack concluded competition at the Hokie Invitational.

    The men’s team recorded numerous top-five performances throughout the day, as senior Kris Kornegay-Gober tied his personal-best and school-record 7’ 4.25” hop over the bar in the men’s high jump. Virginia Tech’s Ronnie Black edged Kornegay-Gober with the same measurement on fewer misses to claim the top spot in the event.

    In the men’s sprints, freshman Jonathan Addison’s 22.07 mark in the men’s 200-meter dash, was good for fifth place. Senior Austin Jackson also took fifth place in the men’s 400-meter dash with a season-best time of 49.65 in the event, while freshman Brian Davis crossed the finish line in under 50 seconds with a 49.93 clocking, which earned him a seventh-place finish.

    In the men’s shot put, redshirt sophomore Jule Rich notched a fourth-place finish with a 49’ 3.00” toss.

    On the women’s side, the Wolfpack received a handful of top-five showings as well, as junior Elizabeth Shuman topped her previous collegiate-best in the women’s high jump by three inches, soaring over the 5’ 10.75” bar and earning a second-place finish. Senior Danielle Adams placed fifth with a 5’ 5.75” leap, while sophomore Caitlynn Filla was sixth at 5’ 3.75”.



    In the long jump, senior Karimah Shepherd finished fourth with a 19’ 6.75” measurement, while freshman Alexis Perry grabbed fifth place with an 18’ 10.75” mark. Shepherd soared 3 inches farther than last weekend’s first-place jump, but a trio of Central Florida jumpers took the top three spots in Saturday’s event.

    In the women’s 400-meter dash, freshman Ariah Graham raced her way to a third-place finish with a time of 54.77. Graham’s third-place finish at Virginia Tech was her second in as many weeks.

    Redshirt sophomore Tremanisha Taylor collected a third-place finish in the women’s shot put with a collegiate-best at an indoor meet. Taylor’s previous best was 49’ 9.00”, but Saturday’s hurl traveled 49’ 10.00” to lock down her third straight top-three finish in the event this season.

    NC State will return to action next weekend, Feb. 1-2, when it travels to Winston-Salem, N.C., for the Hilton Garden Invitational.
