Moorestown grad Brandon Outlaw dropped his 400 PR Friday in the trials of the ACC Championships.
Outlaw, a junior at Virginia, was the second-fastest qualifier, winning the fourth of four heats in 46.20 and qualifying automatically for Saturday’s final.
That’s No. 5 in Virginia history.
The Atlantic Coast Conference track championships are being held at Paul Derr Track and Field Facility on the North Carolina State campus in Raleigh, N.C. – the one-time home of the National Scholastic Championships.
Virginia Tech’s Jacory Patterson, who won the first heat in 45.74, was the only faster qualifier. Patterson won the last two ACC 400s, the 2020 and 2021 meets.
Outlaw’s previous PR was 46.35 earlier this year in a meet in Raleigh, N.C.
At Moorestown, Outlaw ran 46.82 at the 2017 Central Jersey Group 3 sectionals at Bernards – No. 6 in South Jersey – and went on to win the Meet of Champions.
