The North Carolina track and field team opened the 2013 indoor season at home this weekend with the Dick Taylor Invitational. The two-day event featured 11 teams, six clubs and several individuals not attached to a single team.
On Friday, UNC’s women’s team finished with three first-place finishes in events including the women’s high jump, women’s 600-meter run and women’s indoor pentathlon, which is a culmination of five different events.
Freshman Tory Kemp won the women’s pentathlon, and seniors Marisa Dobbins and Ariel Roberts also contributed with wins in the women’s 600 meter run and women’s high jump, respectively.
The men’s team added two first place finishes with victories by senior Reynaldo Radlin in the men’s 600-meter run and Clayton Parros in the men’s 200-meter dash.
“Friday was a good start for us,” Parros said. “We had a certain plan coming into the meet. Coach sat everybody down and gave us all our individual plan, so it was good to go out there and see a lot of people execute the way we were told, and the 200 was part of that.”
