Solid Day 1 For Indoor T&F At ACC Indoors

LOUISVILLE, KY.—The University of North Carolina got off to a good start on Thursday in the first day of 2023 Atlantic Coast Conference Indoor Track & Field Championships. The Carolina men are in seventh place after one day, while the women are ninth.
The Tar Heels excelled in both the men’s and women’s seeded 5000m run. Carolina got on the board after a fifth-place finish by Brynn Brown in the women’s 5000m. Ava Dobson (ninth place in 16:20.96) and Sasha Neglia (10th in 16:21.79) both set personal bests and were just outside of scoring range. Fatima Alanis finished 12th.

In the men’s 5000, Carolina placed six in the top 26, led by Parker Wolfe in eighth place in 14:02.97 and Will Coogan in 12th in 14:07.36.

James Joycey and Troy Yearwood both had personal records and scoring finishes in the men’s weight throw. Joycey had a big effort in round six, moving from ninth to fifth and finishing at 21.18m. Yearwood was right behind him in sixth place at 21.16m.

 Day two of the three-day ACC Championship is set for Friday, beginning with the heptathlon high hurdles at 11 a.m.
