The women's team comes into the conference tournament as the highest nationally ranked ACC team at No. 13. The men's team is unranked. The last time one of the two teams won an ACC Indoor Championship was 2004 when the women took the top spot.

"For both the men and the women I'm looking for them to embrace this opportunity," North Carolina head coach Harlis Meaders said. "A lot of our training and practices are aimed at the conference championship. Once we get to the meet there's a lot of expectations and a lot of excitement, but our job is to not let the meet be bigger than us. Sometimes kids get lost with the stadium, lights and other teams, but it's something we prepared for. We just have to go in there and do our jobs."

A recap of performances and full results will be available on GoHeels.com after the conclusion of each day. Follow the team on Twitter (@UNCTrack_Field) for immediate updates.
