Men’s Track and Field Title Results
The men’s title is Virginia Tech’s fourth ACC outdoor championship (2012, 2016, 2017, and 2019), with three of them coming in the last four years. The Hokies completed a sweep of the indoor and outdoor men’s titles, tying for the indoor title with Florida State back in February.
Freshman Jacory Patterson was the big star, winning the 400 meters (45.60 seconds), placing second in the 200 meters (20.77), and running on 4×100 and 4×400 teams that finished second and fourth, respectively. Bashir Mosavel-Lo came in first in the 800 meters (1:49.90) and also ran on the 4×400 squad. Miles Green was first in the 400-meter hurdles and competed on the 4×400 team as well.
Other Virginia Tech winners were Fitsum Seyoum (3000M steeplechase), Deakin Volz (pole vault), and Jaelyn Demory (decathlon).
Like Patterson, Green is a freshman, and Mosavel-Lo is just a sophomore. Another freshman, Cole Beck (a familiar name to Hokie football fans), finished fourth in the 100 meters and ran on the 4×100 relay team. Beck was competitive in the 200 meters as well, coming in fifth in the preliminaries with a time of 20.98. Sadly, Beck false started in the finals and was disqualified. His prelim time of 20.98 would have finished fifth in the finals, as well.
Seyoum and Demory are redshirt sophomores, and Volz is a senior.
Here’s a complete list of all the Hokie men who finished in the top eight of their events.
