BLACKSBURG, Va. – The Florida State men’s and women’s indoor track and field teams performed well at the first day of the Hokie Invitational on the campus of Virginia Tech Friday night.
A week after a strong start to the indoor season in Blacksburg, Va., the Seminoles continued that trend as Brandon Byram finished in first place (33.19m) in the men’s 300-meter dash in what was the greatest performance in the event ever by an FSU student-athlete. It also is the best time in the entire nation. Kevin Williams earned an 18th place (35.23) finish.
Hyman also competed in the 60-yard dash and came in fourth with a mark of 6.73.
Tremaine Grant participated in the 60-meter hurdles and his 8.02 mark was good enough for a fifth-place finish. Daniel Salgado finished 28th in the same event. Grant then followed that up with an eighth-place slot in the finals of the 60-meter hurdles.
On the women’s side, Amy Harris came in 25th in the 60-meter dash on a time of 7.74. Lauren Giffin then performed well in the pole vault. Her second-place finish occurred after she got a mark of 3.70.
Harris was in action once again as she finished sixth in the triple jump. Her teammate, Michelle Jenije, achieved a third-place finish in the same event with a mark of 12.77.
FSU returns to action Saturday morning with the final day of the event set to start at 10 a.m.
