One week af­ter East Carolina won its lone home meet, the Pi­rates trav­eled to Greens­boro and posted 11 event vic­to­ries at Ag­gie Sta­dium on the cam­pus of North Carolina A&T State to leave coach Curt Kraft im­pressed with the marks by his squad.

Multi-event win­ners were Mo­hogany Baker, Dis­cus (52.35m) and Ham­mer (53.19m), and Ryan Davis, Dis­cus (51.25m) and Ham­mer (58.64m). Baker pro­duced the sec­ond-best mark by an Amer­i­can Ath­letic Con­fer­ence ath­lete in the dis­cus this sea­son.

“This week­end’s meet was with­out ques­tion the best over­all meet that we have had up to this point with both the men’s and women’s pro­grams,” Kraft said in a re­lease. “We made huge im­prove­ments with both pro­grams on our AAC per­for­mance list and the NCAA East Re­gional list.”

Se­nior Hunter Roberts took the AAC lead in the 100m hur­dles with a time of 13.45 – the third fastest in pro­gram his­tory. Ced­rina Sin­gle­tary won the 100m (11.71) for the the sixth-fastest out­door 100m time in school his­tory.
