The North Carolina track and field team earned four ACC titles over the weekend and multiple athletes earned all-conference honors over the weekend at the ACC Outdoor Championships in Charlottesville, Va.
The Tar Heels started off hot on Thursday as sophomore Jill Shippee won the ACC Championship in the women’s hammer throw with 68.36 meters – almost nine feet better than second place. North Carolina added another ACC Championship when redshirt first-year Madison Wiltrout won the women’s javelin toss with 55.60 meters.
Another notable performance came from sophomore Anna Keefer, who earned her fourth-consecutive All-ACC honors in the women’s long jump, set a season-best mark of 6.18 meters and finished sixth in the event.
