Pitt's track and field teams competed at the ACC Outdoor Championships over the weekend. Neither team fared incredibly well with the men's team finishing 10th and the women's team 12th overall. A few individuals, though, made All Conference teams.

Desmond Palmer and Gillian Schriever both landed on the All ACC First Team. Palmer made the All ACC First Team in both the 110m hurdles and the 400m hurdles (runner-up in both) while Schriever earned her achievement in the 5000m race, finishing thrd. In addition, Matt McGoey made the All-ACC Second Team in the 3000m Steeplechace event by finishing in fourth.

The Pitt men's relay team, often a strong group, nearly finished third to make the podium. They finished one-hundredth of a second too late and fell to fourth.

Next up are the NCAA East Preliminary Rounds on May 25-27.
