BOSTON, Mass. (March 8, 2024) – South Carolina Track & Field opened the 2024 NCAA Indoor Championship with three events on Friday afternoon at The TRACK at New Balance in Boston, Mass. The Gamecocks competed in three events, securing a spot in both the men and women’s 200-meter finals on Saturday.

Anthony Greenhow was the first to secure his place in the final, doing so out of heat two in the men’s 200m prelims. The veteran sprinter, competing in his first indoor championship, clocked 20.73 to finish second in his heat. Greenhow’s time was good enough for eighth overall, landing a spot in the finals at 4:50 p.m. on Saturday.
