ATLANTA, Ga. — The University of Miami track and field team finished day two of the 2024 ACC Outdoor Championships Friday evening at Georgia Tech.

At the end of day two, the Miami men’s team is in fourth 32 points while the women’s team ranks sixth with 23 points. 13 events have yet to be scored for both sides.

Sophomore Edgar Campre stood at the top of the podium for registering 7661 points in the men’s decathlon. Campre, the 2024 indoor champion in the men’s heptathlon, claims his second individual conference championship.

The school record holder in the men’s javelin, Devoux Deysel, bested the competition with a powerful 70.49m (231 feet, 3 inches) javelin throw to claim his first individual conference championship and tallying ten points to the men’s team.

With Deysel’s victory and Deisiane Teixeira winning the women’s javelin Thursday morning, it is the first time since 2003 where a school has swept the event at the outdoor conference championships.

Senior jumper Russell Robinson earned the bronze in an exciting men’s long jump competition. Robinson’s leap of 7.82m (25 feet, 8 inches) boosted the men’s point total by six points.
