More than 100 teams were expected to show from colleges and clubs across the country in what was billed as one of the largest meets on the East coast.
Against such a variety of talent, North Carolina's track and field athletes made their presence known by scooping up five first-place trophies.
Ian Douglas snagged first in the men's shot put with a throw of 17.61 meters, beating Pittsburgh's Patrick Harding by almost a meter. The Tar Heel men also grabbed ninth in the hammer throw with Sal Gigante's toss of 178-2 and 10th in javelin with Rory Manger's effort of 188-8.
Senior Jeff Ellis came in second in the men's 800 in 1:49.14.
On the women's side, a familiar face crossed the finish line first in the
200-meter dash, but this time, she wasn't wearing Carolina blue.
LaTasha Colander-Richardson, an Olympian and former Tar Heel, beat Ball State's Jada Phelps and former teammate Crystal Cox in a time of 22.83 seconds.
Ola Sesay captured her second top-five finish of the weekend in the 100 hurdles, coming in fifth. She also took second place in the high jump with a leap of 19-8 3/4 Friday.
In hurdles, Sesay wasn't the top Tar Heel. Luttisha Shittu finished on the heels of St. Augustine's Kia Davis for second.
