The North Carolina track and field competed in the ACC Indoor Championships this weekend. Out of 15 ACC teams, the women finished 10th and the men 12th overall.
Daniel McArthur won an ACC Championship in men's shot put, and North Carolina earned All-ACC honors in six events.
On Saturday, McArthur highlighted the weekend for UNC, taking home an ACC title in the men's shot put. He crushed the field, winning the event with a 19.60-meter hurl. The throw was nearly 4.5 feet longer than the nearest competitor's.
Though as a team North Carolina didn't perform well, several individual performances provided highlights.
On Friday, sophomore Anna Keefer made the All-ACC team in the women’s long jump with a new personal record of 6.26 meters that was good enough for second. In the women’s pole vault, senior Anna Eaton finished sixth with a distance of 4.18 meters. That earned her All-ACC honors, and set a new personal best.
Senior Morgan Ilse won the women’s one-mile preliminary run, and qualified for the final on Saturday, where she finished second and earned All-ACC honors.
Other All-ACC qualifiers include Peighton Simmons, Liam Dixon and the men's 4x400 relay team. Simmons posted a lifetime best in the women's triple jump, landing on the All-ACC second team, while Dixon qualified in the pole vault. The men's 4x400 team of Brandon Cachon, Ryan Saint-Germain, Jadon Johnson and Isaiah Palmer finished third in the event.
