Florida State’s Javier Garcia-Tunon and Boston College’s Timothy Ritchie have been named Atlantic Coast Conference Co-Performers of the Week for the second week of the outdoor season.
FSU’s Garcia-Tunon is a senior from Miami, Fla. The sprinter guided the path last week for the Seminoles, taking first place at the FSU Relays in the 400m hurdles in a regional qualifying 51.19. Garcia-Tunon also ranks first in the league in the 400m hurdles.
For Florida State, Garcia-Tunon’s honor is the second in as many weeks for the Seminoles. Teona Rodgers earned Co-Performer of the Week honors last week.
