Who won the ACC Indoor Track and Field Championships? Which team to watch this year?
Virginia Tech men and Florida State women won the ACC Indoor Track and Field Championships in 2021 and the two teams will be hoping for a similar result in 2022. The latest USTFCCCA Conference TFRI: Track & Field Rating Index sees the Hokies ranked at No. 1 on the men’s side and they will aim to win the program’s seventh indoor conference team title. They have won all six ACC men’s indoor championships under veteran head coach Dave Cianelli. Notre Dame, Clemson and Florida State are primed and ready to go.
The women’s team to beat at this year’s ACC indoor championship seems to be NC State. The Wolfpack are ranked No. 1 in the national conference poll, but Virginia Tech will be tough to beat at its own venue and the likes of Florida State, Duke and Miami (FL) will be aiming to challenge.
