Tallahassee, Fla. – Florida State senior distance runner Andrew Lemoncello (St. Andrews, Scotland/Stirling University) was awarded Atlantic Coast Conference co-Performer of the Week for his performance at the Stanford Invitational on Friday, March 31, 2006. The All-American shares this week’s honor with North Carolina’s Justin Ryncavage, which was announced by the league on Monday, April 3, 2006.
Lemoncello posted an NCAA automatic qualifying time of 28:32.92 to place fourth in the men’s 10K at the Stanford Invitational this past weekend. The reigning ACC Outdoor champion in the 10K improved on his personal best by 11 seconds. A senior from St. Andrews, Scotland, Lemoncello bettered the Seminole school record set by Joep Tigchelaar in 2003 by less than a second (28:33.81). The time is the fastest record in the ACC this season and the fourth fastest in the nation.
The Seminoles are both home and away this weekend, with an elite group leaving for the prestigous Texas Relays and a small group competing in the third home meet of the season.
