Pack’s Hill races into record books

February 19, 2013 

— N.C. State senior Ryan Hill wasn’t satisfied with just receiving an invitation to compete in the 106th Millrose Games, one of track and fields most prestigious events. He ran the mile in 3 minutes, 54.89 seconds Sunday and finished sixth in the Wanamaker Mile at the New Balance Track & Field Center at The Armory.

It was the fastest time by a collegiate miler from North Carolina, surpassing former North Carolina runner Tony Waldrop’s 3:55 mark. In addition to breaking his own school record, it was also the fourth fastest by a collegian and the second fastest by an American collegiate runner.

Hill, a Hickory native, currently owns the fastest 3,000-meter and 5,000m times in the ACC this season. Hill, a four-time track and field All-American, will return to action in this weekend’s ACC Indoor Championships in Blacksburg, Va.


North Carolina: No. 1 North Carolina scored in each of the first three innings Monday en route to a 7-1 home win against Coastal Carolina at Boshamer Stadium.

Carolina jumped out to a 5-0 lead after three innings . Colin Moran scored Chaz Frank with a sacrifice fly in the first and Cody Stubbs added a sacrifice fly in the third.

N.C. State: After two cancellations over the weekend, N.C. State team will host Charlotte Tuesday at 3 p.m.


N.C. State: Albin Choi moved into the top five, and the N.C. State men’s team is up to 12th after Monday’s second round of the Puerto Rico Classic in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico.

The Wolfpack improved 12 shots from the first round with a 3-over 291 and sits at 18-over 594 through 36 holes.

Women’s Basketball

Duke: Duke junior Tricia Liston was selected the ACC Player of the Week for scoring a career-high 29 points in an 81-70 victory over Wake Forest on Sunday.

Liston scored 21 in the second half to go along with nine rebounds.

In Sunday’s game, Liston picked up her play after junior All-America Chelsea Gray went down with a knee injury and did not return. Liston scored nine of Duke’s final 13 points to lead the Blue Devils to the victory.
