The North Carolina track and field team traveled to South Bend, Indiana to participate in the Notre Dame Invite.
The Tar Heels continued their early season momentum on Saturday with the women placing third, and the men placing fifth in the invite. Both teams saw strong individual performances as well. UNC finished in the top three in an event 14 times — eight on the women’s side, and six for the men.
Who stood out?
While it was only a week between meets, the UNC team still managed to take impressive strides since last Saturday. Long jumper Joey Souza bested his mark from last week by nearly .2 meters. His improvement from 7.37 meters a week ago to 7.53 meters helped him to earn a second-place finish in the meet.
