Outdoor @ACCTrackField: Weekly Honors Announced

 

Georgia Tech’s Snoddy, NC State’s Colley and Perry honored

GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Georgia Tech junior Broderick Snoddy and NC State senior Andrew Colley have been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Track and Field Co-Performers of the Week, while NC State sophomore Alexis Perry earned ACC Women’s Performer of the Week honors.

Georgia Tech’s Snoddy posted a pair of national top-10 times during last weekend’s Yellow Jacket Invitational. The Carrollton, Ga., native captured the men's 100 meters with a personal-best time of 10.28, 10th-best nationally so far this outdoor season. He set another career-best time in the 200 meters, finishing second in 20.70, which is the fastest time in the ACC so far and ranks seventh nationally.

NC State’s Colley, running in the Raleigh Relays, set a personal best in the men's 1,500 meters with a blazing time of 3:44.21, making up three spots on the final lap to jump from fourth place to cross the finish line in first place. The Williamsburg, Va., native’s time stands as the fourth-best time in the nation in the men’s 1,500 meters this season and the fastest time in the ACC in the event in 2014.

NC State’s Perry posted marks that rank among the nation’s top 15 in a pair of events during the Raleigh Relays women’s competition.  The Durham, N.C., native ranks third nationally in the long jump following her school-record distance of 21-2 (6.45 meters). She topped Karimah Shepherd's previous top NC State mark of 21-1¼. Perry also finished in first place in the 100-meter hurdles with a personal best time of 13.39 after finishing first in the qualifying heat, which featured 116 competitors. That mark places her 13th in the country.
