Seminole Women Add Mid-Season Talent to Track Corps

Jan. 10, 2005

Tallahassee, Fla. – Florida State women’s track team added All-American Alyce Williams (Flagler, FL/Palm Coast) and British standout Barbara Parker (Norfolk, England/Loughborough) during the semester break, announced head coach Bob Braman today, January 10, 2005.

Williams, an indoor All-American in 2004 and three-time NCAA Qualifier, adds talent to a strong jumps group. Returning to her home state of Florida, the Palm Coast native earned All-American status after finishing ninth at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships in 2004. She owns a personal record of 43′ (13.11m) in the triple jump, which would put her at third all-time on the Florida State top ten all-time performance list. Williams was named the 2004 Colonial Athletic Association’s Outstanding Performer of the Meet after winning four of seven events and scoring in six. The four-time CAA Champion holds individual event titles in the long and triple jumps as well as championships as a leg of the 4x100m and 4x400m relay.

Parker is a two-time gold medalist in the AAA Under-23 3000m Steeplechase, earning gold in 2002 and 2003. The Norfolk, England native was the 2000 English Schools 800m run Champion and made it to the European Under-23 finals of the steeplechase. The junior physical education major represented the English schools at the pentathlon event in 2003. She ran a personal best time of 10:13 at the Golden League Pre-Meet in 2003, a mark that would have earned her All-America accolades in the 2004 NCAA National Championships.

Both student-athletes will have the chance to take their proven skills to the track this weekend as FSU heads to Gainesville, Fla., for the Florida Intercollegiates on Saturday, January 15, 2005.
