— Nicole Chavis secured a second-place finish in the women’s weight throw, while Jonathan Addison claimed second in the men’s long jump, as both took home a pair of silver medals for the NC State track and field team on day two of the ACC Indoor Championships at the Clemson University Indoor Track and Field Complex.

As a whole, both the Wolfpack men’s and women’s teams stand in fifth place after day two of competition heading into tomorrow’s final day. On the men’s side, Duke is in first place with 44 points while UNC and Florida State are tied for second place with 40. Notre Dame sits in fourth with 32 points while NC State has 26.

On the women’s end, Florida State is in first place with 41 points, while Duke (37) is in second and Maryland (33) is in third. Miami (20) claims the fourth spot in the order, just two points ahead of fifth-place NC State (18).

Chavis, who holds the NC State school record in the indoor weight throw, set a new record on Friday with a fifth round heave of 68' 8.75" (20.95m) to earn the silver medal. The throw broke the redshirt sophomore’s previous mark of 67’01.50”, set two weeks ago in the UCS Invitational.

In the men’s long jump, Addison set a personal best of 25'3.25" (7.70m) to garner his silver medal and earn eight team points for the Wolfpack squad. The sophomore from Raleigh, N.C. has finished in first, second, third and fourth place in the four long jumps he has competed in this year.

Alexis Perry, competing in the women’s long jump, took home the bronze medal and All-ACC honors with a third-place result, setting a new personal best in the event with a leap of 20'4.50" (6.21m).

Addison (6' 9.50”, 2.07m) and Lacey Shuman (5' 10.75", 1.80m) each finished in fifth place, respectively, in the men’s and women’s high jump, while Jule Rich (62'7.25”, 19.08m) just missed out on medaling in the men’s weight throw, finishing in fourth place. Nathaniel Williams, also competing in the men’s weight throw, finished seventh with a result of 60'9.25 (18.52m).

Andrew Colley finished in sixth place in the men's 5,000m with a time of 14:07.89, while Joanna Thompson (16:35.80) took home a ninth-place finish in the women's 5k to close the women’s slate for the day. Both Colley and Thompson will take part in the men’s and women’s 3,000m tomorrow.

In qualifying heats, Perry advanced to Saturday’s final in the women’s 60m hurdles with a time of 8.45 while Ryanna Henderson (4:47.49) and Megan Moye (4:47.72) grabbed the final two spots to advance to finals in the women's one mile run.

Paisley Simmons advanced to the finals of the women’s 200m tomorrow with a time of 24.40.
