— Alexis Perry, Tremanisha Taylor and Paisley Simmons each earned bronze medals, in addition to All-ACC honors, for the NC State track and field team on the final day of the 2014 ACC Indoor Championship.

Perry, who had already laid claim to a bronze medal in the women's long jump on Friday, took home another on Saturday with a third-place finish in the 60m hurdles, finishing the course in 8.38.

Taylor, the school-record holder in the women's indoor shot put, medaled after a throw of 54'4.50" (16.57m). Taylor and UNC's Sarah Howard finished the event with the same result, but Howard took home the silver medal by throwing a greater distance on an earlier attempt. Taylor now adds a second All-ACC indoor honor to her ledger to become a four-time All-ACC performer in both the indoor and outdoor shot put.

Simmons claimed the bronze in 24.29 in the women's 200m, earning the first All-ACC honor of her career as a true freshman. Simmons also finished in sixth in the 60m dash (7.49) on the day.

In the men's 3,000m, four NC State runners placed in the top-20. Andrew Colley led the Pack with a time of 8:21.02, good enough for a fifth-place finish. Graham Crawford (8:22.11) and Sam Roberson (8:24.36), finished in eighth and ninth place while Matt Sonnenfeldt came in 20th with a time of 8:27.57.

In the men's 4X400 relay, Brian Davis, Will Krehnbrink, Vibushan Sivakumaran and Erin Jenkins finished in eighth place with a result of 3:20.96.

Joanna Thompson took ninth-place in the women's 5,000m with a time of 16:35.80, while Ryanna Henderson (4:52.12) and Megan Moye (4.52.35), finished ninth and 10th, respectively in the women's one mile run.

As a team the NC State women finished in ninth-place, while the men earned a 10th-place showing.
