    RALEIGH, N.C. – Highlighted by four more all-conference performances on the final day of the 2013 ACC Outdoor Championships, the NC State track & field team concluded a historical championship meet at Paul Derr Track Saturday evening.

    “I received several compliments from ACC representatives and officials on how well this meet was run,” said head coach Rollie Geiger. “When you host a competition such as this, it is your home. I think it was a real plus for our department with the organization that we had this weekend.”

    Over the course of the three-day meet, the Wolfack combined for nine All-ACC performances and one ACC individual champion. The women’s team finished the weekend with five all-conference performances, as the men’s team picked up four.

    “I thought we had a nice balance throughout the program this weekend,” said Geiger. “We scored in the jumps, the throws, middle distance, distance and in the sprints and hurdles. I thought there was a lot of balance. Obviously if you’re going to be successful, you have to have some balance. It was a great team effort.”

    The women’s team finished in third place with 82 points and notched its best finish at the ACC Outdoor Championships since the 1986 team who finished second.

    Junior Elizabeth Shuman got the Wolfpack off to a strong start in the women’s high jump with a 5’ 10.50” (1.79m) leap over the horizontal bar en route to a third place finish and her first-ever All-ACC recognition.

    “I was jumping five-feet and 10-inches in high school so it’s good to get back there,” Shuman said. “The two girls who finished first and second were in my conference in high school so it was kind of like a reunion. I’m glad I finally did it. I already qualified for regionals, so hopefully I’ll make nationals and go from there.”

    Senior Danielle Adams also fared well in the event, clearing 5’ 9.25” (1.76m) to finish in fifth place.

    The women’s team also had a pair of fourth-place performances on the day, as senior Andie Cozzarelli completed the 5,000-meter run in 16:03.82, while freshman Alexis Perry completed the women’s 100-meter hurdles in 13.73 seconds.

    In the men’s 1,500-meter race, freshman Graham Crawford moved from fifth place to third place on the final lap before crossing the finish line with a season-best time of 3:45.34 to clinch his first All-ACC accolade.

    Lining up for just the second time this season, redshirt junior Andrew Colley raced to a third-place finish in 14:00.92 in the men’s 5,000-meter run to also pick up his first All-ACC award as a track runner.

    Competing in his final conference championship meet, senior jumper Kris Kornegay-Gober leaped to a third-place finish in the men’s high jump with a top measurement of 7’ 1.50” (2.17m) in the event to receive All-ACC recognition for the first  time in his career competing on the outdoor circuit.

    The men’s team finished eighth overall with 39 points over the course of the meet.

    “We have regionals and we have a number of athletes who have regional marks,” Geiger said. “We would like to get at least several athletes to the NCAA Championships.”

    NC State will return to action next weekend at the Penn Relays in Philadelphia, Pa., April 25-27.
