The No.5-ranked Florida State track and field teams earned seven top three finishes, highlighted by junior Tiara Swanagan’s first-place finish in the triple jump, Saturday afternoon at the Tom Jones Memorial Invitational at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center in Gainesville.

“We used this weekend as more of a “get ready” meet in preparation for three consecutive road meets in Nebraska, New York and Arkansas,” Seminole head coach Bob Braman said.  “We kind of knew that coming in but I thought maybe we’d have a few surprise but we really didn’t.  It’s just that time of the year where we’re just grinding and training real hard.”

In finishing first in the triple jump at 12.88, Swanagan (Orange Park, FL) notched her second NCAA provisional qualifying mark in as many weeks.  Freshman Christal Washington’s (Hollywood, FL) second place finish in the 800 meter run in a time of 2:10.19 was just shy of the NCAA provisional mark (2:09.40).  Other top three finishes included senior Matt Wernke (Tallahassee, FL) in the weight throw (17.94m), junior Caila Coleman (Tallahassee, FL) in the weight throw (17.26m), sophomore Gonzalo Barroilhet (Santiago, Chile) in the long jump (7.09m), freshman Danielle Williams (Pensacola, FL) in the high jump (1.68m) and senior Tim Reen (Jupiter, FL) in the high jump (2.04m).

The Seminoles will compete at the adidas Classic in Lincoln, Neb., on Saturday, January 31st.
