Finish lines

• Five ACC teams hold the top 25 spots in the latest USTFCCCA Indoor Athletics Rankings, including two men’s teams at No. 15 Florida State and No. 22 Clemson.

• On the women’s side, NC State’s No. 11 women hold the highest national ranking of any ACC team. Virginia Tech, which is gearing up to host the ACC Indoor Track and Field Championships Feb. 24-26, is ranked 17th, followed by Duke at 21st.

• This is the 27th week in a row that the FSU men have held a top-15 finish in the USTFCCCA rankings.

• Another ACC record fell last weekend as Florida State senior Trey Cunningham’s time of 7.46 in the 60-meter hurdles at the Texas Tech Open was the fourth fastest in the college history and broke its previous mark of 7.51 set in 2020. Cunningham’s time was also a school and institution record.

• Cunningham is the third student-athlete to set a new ACC record this indoor season. NC State’s Katelyn Tuohy set a conference mark in the women’s 3,000 meters with her time of 8:54.17 at the Sharon Colyear-Danville season opener hosted by Boston University on Dec. 4. Notre Dame’s Yared Nuguse put his name in the books at the Notre Dame Invitational on Jan. 22, posting a time of 3:54.46 in the mile that set a new ACC men’s indoor record.

• Cunningham remained on Bowerman’s watch list, the USTFCCCA announced on Thursday afternoon. Cunningham was named to the preseason watch list on Jan. 6 and is one of seven athletes who remained on the list. He is also the first Nole to appear on the roster in three separate seasons (2020-22).

• Cunningham and Nuguse are among four ACC student-athletes who currently hold the NCAA’s top marks for the 2021-22 season in their respective individual events. They are joined by Virginia Tech’s Seb Anthony (men’s 1,000 meters) and Virginia Tech’s Barbora Malíková (women’s 600 meters).

• Additionally, Boston College’s women’s 4×800 relay team of Paige Carter, Katherine Mitchell, Anna Oeser and Lauren White also continues to top the Division I national standings.
