Florida State Track and Field Heads to Clemson

Jan. 23, 2004

Tallahassee – The Florida State men’s and women’s track teams will head to Clemson this Saturday, January 24, 2003 to compete at the Clemson Invitational in the new Clemson Indoor Track and Field complex.

So far this season, the Noles have had two athletes qualify for the NCAA Indoor National Championships. Senior Vicky Gill (Lancashire, England/St. Andrews University) automatically qualified in the 3000m event at the Clemson Opener in early December. The ACC Player of the Week for January 5-9, 2004, broke the FSU school indoor record in the event as well as her own personal best mark, finishing the course in a time of 9:15.68.

Sophomore Rafeeq Curry (Miami, FL/ACE Academy) provisionally qualified for the triple jump competition at last weekend’s Florida Intercollegiates. The reigning ACC Indoor Triple Jump champion jumped to a mark of 15.84m (52’00”) in the event to continue the season streak of two meets in which a Tribe member qualifies for nationals.

At the Florida Intercollegiates, sophomore John Fallone (Rochester, N.Y./Virginia Tech) won the men’s shot put, besting the field with a 17.03m (55’10”) throw.
