Gallery: Prospects Excel at 4A Track Championships

It was the 84th annual men's NCHSAA state 4-A track and field championships Saturday at the Paul Derr Track on the North Carolina State University campus, and several Wolfpack football targets were in attendance.

New Bern (NC) Athlete Montario Hardesty placed third in the 100 meter dash (claiming the bronze medal with a 10.89 mark) and sixth in the 200 meter dash (22.67). Hardesty is one of the state's top football prospects and has already received scholarship offers from NC State, North Carolina, and East Carolina. The 6'1 195 pound Running Back/Defensive Back prospect currently favors NC State and Florida State.

West (NC) Charlotte Athlete Trenton Guy came into today's 4-A championships as one of the premier standouts, placing among the state's leaders in the 100 meter dash, 200 meter dash, and long jump respectively. An early groin injury hampered his efforts throughout the day as he battled the pain to finish his events. Trenton finished 5th in the long jump with a mark of 21 feet and 11.5 inches, and he also finished 6th in the 100 meter dash (11.09). At 5'10 and 170 pounds, Guy has seen his recruiting interest pick up with schools across the region evaluating the wide receiver/defensive back prospect. NC State and Virginia Tech appear to be the early leaders for Trenton.

Fayetteville (NC) Jack Britt Cornerback Brandon Ghee had a rough day at the championships, after DQ'ing due to a false start in the 100 meter dash and failing to advance to the 200 meter finals. However, he did lead the Jack Britt men's relay team to 5th and 6th place finishes in the 4X200 and 4X100 relays respectively. On the gridiron Brandon stars as a defensive back for the Bucs, and he already has offers from Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, and Duke.

New Bern Athlete Kelvin Hardesty, the younger brother of Montario, placed seventh in the 200 meter dash with a time of 23 seconds. He's also an excellent football player and potential future Wolfpack target.
