For the North Carolina track and field team, it was a tale of two days.
In the Tobacco Road Multis — which gives pentathletes and heptathletes the rare opportunity to compete before the ACC Championship — the UNC men's team shined on Thursday before the women stole the show on Friday.
Much of the focus on the opening day was on redshirt junior Paul Haley, who won the heptathlon in the 2015 ACC Championship. Through four events, Haley ranked fourth after finishing the 60-meter dash in 7.30 seconds and clearing 1.96 meters in the high jump.
Sophomore Nick Futia also fared well in the heptathlon, finishing the day in seventh place after posting a 60-meter dash time of 7.56 and throwing 10.85 meters in the shot put.
On day two, the men's success came to a halt. Haley was unable to compete due to a tight hamstring, and Futia was disqualified in the 60-meter hurdles and did not finish the heptathlon.
