Male's Townsend commits to North Carolina A&T

By Jason Frakes July 21, 2016

Male High School product Taliyah Townsend, who won a trio of sprints at the Class 3-A state track and field meet in May, has committed to North Carolina A&T.

Townsend won the 100-, 200- and 400-meter dashes in helping Male capture the state team title and had scholarship offers from Baylor, Florida State, Michigan State, Ohio State and several others.

“Everybody thinks I’m crazy for choosing a smaller school over the big schools, but I don’t think it’s about the school you go to,” Townsend said. “It’s about how you progress as an individual and an athlete on your own.”

Townsend said she didn’t visit North Carolina A&T until the middle of June and was impressed with Aggies head coach Duane Ross, who was a member of the U.S. Olympic Team in 2004.

“I really liked that he’d be the one working with me,” Townsend said. “A lot of the other schools, it wouldn’t have been the head coach working with me. It would have been the sprints coach.”

Townsend said she will enroll at North Carolina A&T next month and plans to major in biology. She plans to go into the pharmaceuticals business.

Very nice pickup for A&T.  :clap:

Track and Field is the one sport that we can conceivably compete against any other institutions as evidenced by all the former Olympians that have attended our programs.

By the way, I didn't know Duane Ross was the coach there. :clap:

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.
