NY #4 All-Time Reheem Hayles (Springfield Gardens) will be joining the North Carolina A&T Aggies, next fall. The signee had a breakout year in the middle-distances, most specifically in the 600m. Hayles cruised to an impressive 1:18.48 at the State Meet, which now stands as the 6th fastest time ever run by a American Prep Athlete.
No doubt that boosted his stock, as Hayles heads to the home of New Balance Outdoor Nationals. NC A&T has slowly been making a name for itself in the sprinting scene, as more and more alumni show up on the Professional Circuit. Most notable for New Yorkers would be Chris Belcher (Sayville), an indoor State Champ for 55m back in 2013. Belcher's career skyrocketed at A&T, culminating with making the 2017 World Championships, where he made Team USA. Belcher currently carries a best of 9.93 in the 100m.
