ECU, Staff reports

Friday, June 8, 2018

Galissia Cause already was the East Carolina record holder in the outdoor shot put and she ended her collegiate career Thursday night in All-America fashion, placing 10th in the shot put event at the NCAA Outdoor Championships held in Eugene, Ore. Taking 10th place garnered her second-team All-America honors.

Cause, a senior, is the first All-American for the ECU track and field program since Avion Jones was a first-teamer in the high jump in 2016.

She recorded a mark of 16.72 meters on her second attempt to clinch her national 10th-place finish. She ended her career as a four-time NCAA East preliminary qualifier as well as this year’s American Athletic Conference discus champion.

The Pirates’ other competitor at the NCAA championships was also a senior — Stefano Migliorati — and he finished in 20th in the 800-meter run.

He crossed the finish line in a time of 1 minute, 51.68 seconds to place seventh in his heat. Only the top two times from each heat as well as the next two best times advanced to the finals.

Migliorati won three AAC titles in the 800m (2017 indoor and 2017/2018 outdoor) during his career and exits ECU as the school record holder in both the indoor and outdoor 800m events. He also qualified for the NCAA East preliminary meet during his junior and senior seasons.

Stanford was leading the women’s team standings in Eugene, Ore., on Friday and Georgia was in first place for the men. The championship meet concludes Saturday.

As much pressure as there is on the East Carolina running backs to make big plays when they are in space, there is possibly even more pressure on the Pirates’ offensive line to create adequate space for the backs to roam.

Of all the statistics that doomed East Carolina’s football team in 2017, and on defense in particular, a glaring disparity was that ECU scored 31 points off turnovers and opponents finished with 121.

It remains difficult for East Carolina’s offense to run against the ECU defensive front, which led to the team airing it out Saturday during the first scrimmage of the preseason.

Defensive backs and receivers battled for the football often to highlight the 100-plus play scrimmage at Dowdy-…

There is no question that Trevon Brown is East Carolina’s best receiver, and big production will be needed out of him again for the Pirates to reach their goal of making a bowl game, but opportunity also remains behind Brown.
