GREENSBORO, N.C. - Toni Aluko of the University of Maryland won two individual events and hit a qualifying mark for the ECAC Outdoor Championships with her performances Saturday at the Aggie Team Challenge outdoor track and field meet hosted by North Carolina A&T.

Aluko, a Terrapin sophomore, cleared 5 feet, 7.75 inches to win the women's high jump. The mark, coming in Maryland's first meet of the outdoor season, was a half-inch better than her previous outdoor career-best and improved her No. 3 position on the all-time list outdoors. The mark also qualified her for the ECAC Outdoor Championships, to be held in May.

Aluko also won the women's triple jump at 37-11.25.

Also for Maryland, sophomore Aysha Gregory also qualified for the ECAC meet with her victory in the women's hammer. She went 160-5 to win the event by more than two feet. Bria Johnson also hit an ECAC mark with her second-place finish in the women's shot put at 45-5.75.

The Maryland women finished second in the team standings to North Carolina, posting 129 points to come within striking distance of the Tar Heels' total of 145.5.

On the men's side, Maryland placed third with 98 points, behind only Wake Forest (123) and host North Carolina A&T (110).

Senior Beau Fay earned an ECAC-qualifying mark with a second-place finish in the hammer at 176-1.

Brian Grubel won the men's pole vault at 14-5.25 for the Terps, while Mike Fleg captured the men's 1,500 in 4:02.67.

Maryland competes next Saturday in the Navy Invitational before hosting the Maryland Invitational on April 1.
