Florida State Cross Country Competes at Disney Classic



ORLANDO, Fla. — The Florida State men’s and women’s cross country teams
participated in the Disney Classic at Oak Trail Golf Course this morning.
The FSU men placed third while the women were ninth in a field of more than
20 teams.



“I was pleased with the way the men ran,” said head coach Scott Irving.
“We had several of our top runners out due to illness on the women’s team
or they could have placed higher. It was a slow course and the times
dropped off slightly from last week.”



The men were paced by Aaron Scheer’s sixth place overall time of 26:52 on
the 8K course. Following Scheer were Michael Maier (18th – 27:37), David
Ogletree (20th – 27:40), Brad Shriver (24th – 27:55) and Josh Ware (28th –
28:06).



For the Lady Seminoles, freshman Cynthia Campbell was again the top
finisher as she ran 16th overall in a time of 19:14. Nicole Singleton
placed 27th with a time of 19:46 on the 5K course. Kim Mueller (54th –
20:44), Kingsley Broughton (61st – 21:21) and Jennifer Erd (78th – 22:15)
rounded out the top five.



Virginia Tech was the men’s winner with a point total of 44 and Arkansas
took the women’s title with 23 points. The FSU men finished with 96
points, five behind second place Florida, while the women totaled 236.



Both teams will travel to Gainesville next weekend for the Barnett Bank
Invitational.
