— The University of North Carolina track and field teams finished competition at the 2013 ACC Indoor Championships with the men taking fourth place and the women sixth. The Tar Heels claimed 14 All-ACC honors across 11 events.

Lianne Farber took first place in the mile in 4:42.62 for her first career ACC championship win. Annie LeHardy placed fifth in 4:49.19 and Karley Rempel placed sixth in 4:50.77 to also score for the Tar Heels. Coach Harlis Meaders said that Farber will compete in the Alex Wilson Invitational on March 1st in attempt to improve her standing nationally.

Isaac Presson placed third for All-ACC honors in the mile with a time of 4:08.32. He ran a "smart, tactical race" according to Meaders and has "grown considerably this season."

Steve Magnuson placed third to earn All-ACC honors in the 3,000 in a collegiate best 8:09.84.
O'Neal Wanliss placed sixth to score in the 800 final, running in 1:51.86. Meaders remarked that he "fought very hard for the team but got caught in the back."

Clayton Parros scored in the finals of both the 200 and the 400, earning All-ACC honors for his third-place finish in the 400. His times were 21.69 and a season-best 47.35, respectively. Javonte Lipsey also scored in the 400 with his sixth-place and season-best 47.90.

The men's 4x400 of Reynaldo Radlin, Wanliss, Parros and Lipsey finished second in 3:11.63. Regarding this fastest time of the year, Meaders remarked that they "ran very well in a position we really needed them."

Devon Carter scored in the 60-meter hurdles final with his time of 8.04.

Daisaun White leapt a collegiate best in the triple jump, reaching 47-11 3Ž4 (14.62 meters) to score for the men's team.

Chris DiLorenzo earned All-ACC honors for his third-place throw in the shot put of 56-10 1Ž4 (17.33 meters). AJ Hicks placed fifth with his throw of 55-2 (16.81 meters) to also score in the event.

In her first conference championship, Sarah Howard placed sixth to score in the shot put with a throw of 49-5 3Ž4 (15.08 meters).

Briana Hudson finished in sixth in the triple jump followed by Tristine Johnson in seventh to add to the women's score. Hudson reached 41-11 1Ž4 (12.78 meters), which is just a quarter inch shorter than her season-best, and Johnson reached a season-long 41-6 (12.65 meters).

Meaders said that overall he is very pleased the effort put forth by the team, but believes that they shouldn't be content their fourth and sixth place finishes. He said that the team knows they're better than those results and, while he celebrates the individual performances, hopes to improve on the results to more accurately represent the team's talent.

The Tar Heels will next compete at last chance meets at Arkansas, Virginia Tech, and Notre Dame before the NCAA Indoor Championships March 8-9.
