    – The NC State track & field team turned in a plethora of first-place performances Friday, as the Wolfpack completed the first day of the 2013 Raleigh Relays at the Paul H. Derr Track.

    For the second consecutive week, redshirt junior Nathaniel Williams won the men’s discus with a 179’ 6.00” heave, while Jule Rich recorded a fifth-place finish (170’ 6.00”) and Grant Pearce took seventh place (160’ 5.00”). Williams was victorious in the discus at last weekend’s UCF Invitational, where he tied his season best with a 180’ 2.00” throw.

    Senior Karimah Shepherd won the women’s long jump with an outdoor personal-best mark of 20’ 7.25”, while freshman Alexis Perry took seventh in the event with a 19’ 0.50” leap into the sand pit.

    Junior Elizabeth Shuman took top honors in the women’s high jump, while tying her personal best with a 5’ 10.75” leap over the bar in her first outdoor competition of the season.

    The Wolfpack recorded a 1-2 finish in section two of the women’s high jump, where senior Danielle Adams claimed the top spot with a 5’ 7.00” hop over the horizontal bar and Perry took second with a 5’ 5.00” jump.



    NC State recorded one more sweep of the top two spots in the women’s 3,000-meter steeplechase where senior Erin Mercer and redshirt junior Samantha Norman left the rest of the field behind, en route to a 1-2 finish. Mercer finished the race in 10:28.42, while Norman was close behind at 10:30.70. The next finisher crossed the finish line 11 seconds after Norman.

    Redshirt senior Brian Himelright was just as strong in the men’s 3,000-meter steeplechase, hustling his way to a first-place finish with a time of 8:56.25.

    Redshirt sophomore Tremanisha Taylor’s streak of five-straight shot put victories came to an end, but the Henderson, N.C., native was able to grab a second-place finish with a 51’ 0.25” toss.

    Junior Kris Kornegay-Gober competed in the men’s high jump for the first time this outdoor season and leaped 7’ 0.50” for a third-place standing.

    As the sun went down, so did several track records, as Ravenscroft High School senior Wesley Frazier shattered the Girls’ 3,200-meter mark with a 9:57.70 time.  Frazier crossed the finish line more than 39 seconds faster than the second-place finisher and obliterated the track record by a jaw-dropping 24 seconds.

    The women’s 5,000-meter record was broken by nearly one second, as Zap Fitness’ Sarah Crouch clocked a 15:58.36 time to win the race.

    Competition for the final day of the Raleigh Relays will begin at 9:30 a.m., Saturday, March 30, at the Paul H. Derr Track.
