Norfolk State Men’s Track and Field Completes Seventh Consecutive Indoor/Outdoor Sweep
[mpoverlay]The Norfolk State men’s track and field team added another title to its MEAC championship legacy Saturday afternoon at Irwin Belk Track on the campus of North Carolina A&T, winning its seventh consecutive conference outdoor title and clinching its seventh straight sweep of the MEAC indoor and outdoor titles.
NSU amassed 145.5 points, comfortably ahead of runner-up North Carolina A&T’s 95, as the Spartans also recorded their fourth straight MEAC running triple crown with 2011-12 titles in men’s cross country, indoor and outdoor track.
The Spartans won five of the 10 track events contested on Saturday, including a pair of victories by junior Keith Nkrumah in the 110 and 400 meter hurdles. Nkrumah clocked personal-best times of 13.68 in the 110 hurdles final, and 50.40 in the 400 hurdles. The victories marked the first two MEAC gold medals in Nkrumah’s career. He tied with Florida A&M’s Elias Chesire as the Most Outstanding Runner of the MEAC Outdoor Track and Field Championship. Both tallied 20 points toward their team scores.
