Handful of Gamecocks Run Top-10 NCAA Times at Gamecock Opener

South Carolina athletes accounted for five top-10 NCAA marks and 13 event victories

COLUMBIA—The South Carolina track and field teams put up some of the nation’s best performances on Saturday at the Gamecock Opener inside of the Carolina Track and Field Complex.
 
“We had some great performances,” said head coach Curtis Frye. “Just like a season, they go up and down, but we had more good than bad. Our freshman class is really good.”
 
The Gamecocks put down five top-10 NCAA performances and saw several names etched into the indoor all-time performance list.
 
Anthony Greenhow, Jr. followed up his USTFCCCA National Performance of the Week honors with a sub-21-second 200-meter performance. He won the event with a time of 20.89. He sits at No. 3 in the country and moved to No. 7 in school history in the 200 meters.
 
Evan Miller was right behind Greenhow, Jr., finishing the 200 meters with a time of 21.05. His time slots him at No. 10 in the NCAA after the first full weekend of competition across the country.
 
Filip Demsar is also inside the top 10 of the NCAA after Saturday’s performances. He ran a time of 7.84 in the 60-meter hurdle final to win the event and move up to No. 10 in the country. The First Team All-American is positioned well early to repeat as an All-American.
 
On the women’s side, Stephanie Davis ran with three Olympians and Gamecock greats. She took third in the 400 meters, running alongside Olympic Gold medalists Wadeline Johnathas and Natasha Hastings as well as Tokyo Olympian Aaliyah Abrams. Davis ran a time of 52.69, which puts her at No. 2 in the NCAA.
 
The Gamecock women’s 4X400-meter relay team improved upon their previous season best. The quartet of Angel Frank, Davis, Rachel Glenn and Aaliyah Pyatt finished as the top collegiate team with a time of 3:36.04. That time slots the Gamecocks at No. 5 in the NCAA.
 
Angel Frank ran a personal best, dropping her personal-best time in the 200 meters by over three-tenths of a second. Frank ran a time of 23.84 to win the event and move to No. 12 in the NCAA.
 
Kayla Racine threw a new personal best in the weight throw. She tossed the weight 18.98m/63-3.25 to win the event and move into No. 7 in school history in the event. KD Young finished as the runner-up in the weight throw with a toss of 18.10m/59-4.75.
 
The Gamecocks return to action Friday for the first day of the Carolina Challenge. Events are set to begin at 10 a.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. on Saturday.
 
“Next week we’re bringing more teams in,” Frye said. “We’ve got to defend our home field and I think our kids got a good taste of what it takes to be prepared for next week.”
