Tallahassee, FL – The FSU Relays is the second home meet of the outdoor season for Florida State’s track and field teams. This year’s event will feature 15 colleges and universities and over 40 high school teams.

A group of distance athletes will travel to Palo Alto, California for the Stanford Invitational March 30 and 31. Among those traveling will be Tom Lancashire, Andrew Lemoncello, Jessica Crate, and Debbie Huss, to name a few.

Back on the home scene, the men enter the FSU Relays with two national leaders, senior Greg Bolden (Morrow, GA/Albany State) in the 100m dash (10.21) and freshman Charles Clark (Virginia Beach, VA/Bayside) in the 200m dash (20.57). Both athletes posted the fastest times in the nation in their respective events at the Disney Track and Field Invitational last weekend. Bolden, this week’s ACC Performer of the Week, is also listed as No. 5 in the nation for the 200m dash (20.88). The men’s 4x100m relay team of Bolden, Clark, Walter Dix (Coral Springs, FL/Coral Springs), and Cedric Nabe (Geneva, Switzerland/Lycee St. Joseph) goes into the home meet as the No. 2 team in the nation after finishing in 39.55 at the Disney meet.

On the women’s side, two Seminoles are listed in the top five in the nation. Senior Alycia Williams (Palm Coast, FL/George Mason) ran a personal best 52.74 in the 400m dash last weekend to land in the No. 2 position on the women’s national list. Twin sister Alyce Williams (Palm Coast, FL/George Mason) is currently in the fourth spot in the triple jump for her 41’10.50″ performance on March 24. Both marks were first place at the meet and regionally qualified the sisters.

The men’s squad has an agenda this weekend and that is attempting to break school records and set personal bests in as many events as possible. FSU students and all fans are encouraged to come out and watch the Seminoles record the fastest times in the nation. Admission to all home meets is free to everyone.

Saturday, the final day of the meet, will be full of excitement beginning with Seminole Marketing hosting KidsFest! for kids 12 and under. Kids will have the chance to participate in relay races and shot put challenge as well as get their picture taken with the 2006 NCAA Outdoor Championship trophy and collect autographs from track and field athletes. This special event is free and will run from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. and will take place just outside the Mike Long Track.

Also taking place on Saturday morning will be a celebration in honor of the future remodeling of the track facility. Mike Long Track will be getting a much-needed upgrade later in the season which will include a brand new building to house locker rooms, a team meeting space and athletic training area, to name a few. The short ceremony to celebrate this exciting future project will begin at 11:30 a.m. just outside the track.

If that were not enough, ACC Select will also be on hand all-day Saturday covering the meet and will be available for fans within the next week to watch online.
