Tallahassee, Fla. – For the second time in as many opportunities, Florida State cross country runner Fearghal Curtin was named the ACC Men’s Performer of the Week, which was announced Tuesday.
Curtin grabbed his second race victory in as many starts this season, leading the Seminoles to a victory over No. 29 Tennessee in the 6-mile run at 29:09.40. FSU secured the dual meet win behind 22 points.
“Fearghal has had a great start to his FSU career,” FSU head coach Bob Braman said. “He’s a real cross country veteran and is on his way to a great season. This is a great honor for him.”
The FSU men’s cross country team moved up in the polls following its win over No. 29 Tennessee on Friday in Boone, N.C.
The Seminoles jumped the Volunteers in the USTFCCCA South Region poll to No. 3 after opening the first two at No. 4. The women’s team remained at No. 3.
Both teams received votes in the latest edition of the NCAA Cross Country National Coaches’ Poll. The women were first with 26 votes and the men were third behind nine.
The Seminoles will next race in the Joe Piane Invitational, which will be held at Notre Dame on Sept. 30.
