Tallahassee, FL – Florida State sends 10 individual athletes and the men’s 4x400m relay to the NCAA Indoor National Championships in Fayetteville, AK on March 9 and 10.
On the men’s squad competing in the 60m and 200m dashes will be junior Walter Dix (Coral Springs, FL/Coral Springs) and sophomore Michael Ray Garvin (Upper Saddle River, NJ/Don Bosco Prep). Also in the 60m will be seniors Greg Bolden (Morrow, GA/Albany State) and Cedric Nabe (Geneva, Switzerland/Lycee St. Joseph) and freshman Charles Clark (Virginia Beach, VA/Bayside) is the third Seminole in the 200m.
Junior Ricardo Chambers (Palm Beach Gardens, FL/Dwyer), the third fastest 400m runner in the nation, will represent Florida State in the 400m dash as well as run the third leg of the 4x400m relay team along with junior Hubert Mitchell (West Palm Beach, FL/Palm Beach Lakes), sophomore Tywayne Buchanan (Greater Portmore, Jamaica/Wolmer’s Boys’ School) and Charles Clark.
For the men’s distance events, senior Tom Lancashire (Bolton, England/Turton) earned a spot in the 3,000m while fellow senior Andrew Lemoncello (St. Andrew’s, Scotland/Stirling) will compete in the 5,000m run.
Two Seminoles from the women’s team punched their ticket to nationals. Seniors Barbara Parker (Norfolk, England/Loughborough) and Alyce Williams (Palm Coast, FL/George Mason) will battle it out in the mile run and triple jump, respectively.
“We are in position to go in and win,” Head coach Bob Braman said. “Now we just have to go in there and do the best we can to put the points on the board.”
“I feel really good about how we qualified, particularly in the last weekend with Cedric, Michael Ray and Charles getting in. Getting three or four things done at a last chance meet is pretty spectacular finish to the indoor season.”
