The Sunshine State has flexed its muscle through the first two days of the MEAC Track and Field Championships. The Bethune-Cookman men and Florida A&M women both sit atop the team standings after Friday’s events at Irwin Belk Track Complex on the campus of NC A&T.
The FAMU women hold a 48-44 lead over their in-state rival Bethune Cookman. FAMU got a big boost from Shawanna Steplight, who won the heptathlon on Friday. Defending champion Hampton is in sixth-place in the women’s bracket with 18.5 points, and host A&T right behind them with 18.
On the men’s side, BCU has racked up 70 points, more 31 more than second-place Maryland-Eastern Shore. Defending champion Hampton is tied with Howard for third with 21 points heading into the final day.
