TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – After a stellar performance at the FSU Relays this past weekend, senior Laura Gerber was named the women’s ACC Outdoor Track & Field Performer of the Week. Gerber turned in two first place finishes, one in the 400m dash and the other as a member of the 4×400 relay team, to lead the Seminoles. She won the 400m dash by more than two seconds in a time of 52.67, which was good for a qualifying spot at the NCAA Regionals. Gerber was also a member of the 4×400 relay team that posted a season best time of 3:37.25, also an NCAA Regional Qualifying time.
An All-American in the 800m and voted to the ACC 50th Anniversary Women’s Indoor Track & Field team, Gerber enters the 2003 season looking to garner her fourth trip to the NCAA Championships in Sacramento, Calif. in June.
Gerber and the rest of the Seminole track and field team are back in action this weekend at the Florida Relays in Gainesville, Fla., March 28-29.
