TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – This weekend the Florida State Cross Country
team will travel to Tuscaloosa, Ala., to participate in the Crimson
Classic. The meet will host over 30 teams from around the country,
including nationally-ranked South Florida, Tulane, Belmont, and the
University of Alabama.
In only her second race for FSU, freshman Amy Pleckaitis looks to
lead the Lady Seminoles. Pleckaitis finished in first-place in her first
collegiate race two weeks ago in Boone, N.C., at the Appalachian State
Invitational. Junior Brooke Bastien has also looked impressive this season,
coming in second place at her first meet of the season. Bastien looks to
provide high hopes and experience for the Lady Noles this season.
Sophomore Nick Stuart will look to lead the men in this weekend’s
competition. Stuart came in first place for the Noles at the Appalachian
State Invitational. Stuart has also brought experience with him and should
improve as the season progresses. Senior Josh Ware will not compete this
weekend due to a lower leg injury.
“This will certainly be a great test for our young squad” Coach
Braman says. “This meet will determine our standing in the South East, and
will allow us to see how far we have come.”
The race is scheduled for Saturday morning at, Harry Pritchett Golf
