The North Carolina A&T University’s indoor track and field dominated the hurdle event this past Friday at the Clemson Opener in South Carolina. Four Aggies: Sophomore Jason Holmes, Senior Aveon Reid, Sophomore Thomas IV Smith, and Freshman Isaiah Taylor finished within the top-4 60-meter hurdle event.

In addition to ranking No.1 in the 60H, Holmes also had the fastest qualifying time, completing the preliminary event in 7.76.

The Aggies men and women came away with first-place finishes in the 60 hurdles. 

On the women’s side, Junior Lucheyona Weaver earned her second win of the season after running a personal best of 8.19 in the 60H. Freshman Serenity Brazell finished the 800M in 2:15.71, marking the first collegiate win of her career. Camille Herring also finished third behind Brazell at 2:21.90.

The win comes shortly after the men’s indoor track and field had an outstanding opening to the season catching the attention of the Coastal Athletic Association, selecting senior sprinter Caleb Jackson and junior thrower Carlos Alexander for CAA’s athletes of the week.

Last Friday’s event marked the last of the season. The Aggies will return January 13th, 2024 to compete at the Gamecock Open in South Carolina.
