Feb. 14, 2006

Tallahassee, Fla. – Florida State redshirt senior Lacy Janson (Sarasota, Fla./Cardinal Mooney) and redshirt junior Garrett Johnson (Tampa, Fla./Tampa Baptist Academy) were named Atlantic Coast Conference Co-Performers of the Week for their achievements at the Tyson Invitational meet from Friday, February 10 to Saturday, February 11, 2006. Janson shared the honor with Miami’s Tabia Charles while Johnson paired up with Virginia Tech’s Brian Mondschein.

Janson cleared 14′ 4.0″ (4.37m) in winning the women’s pole vault competition at the Tyson Invitational. It is the senior’s fourth automatic qualifying mark in the pole vault this season and her highest vault since capturing the 2003 indoor national title. The Sarasota, Fla., native recaptured the top spot in the nation with her performance over the weekend.

Johnson moved into first place in the nation with his winning performance in the men’s shot put competition at the Tyson Invitational. The junior from Tampa, Fla., took first place honors with his throw of 66′ 2.5″ (20.18m), eclipsing his previous season best by almost 2.5 feet. It was Johnson’s third NCAA automatic qualifying mark of the year.

Other notes:
The women’s 4x400m relay provisionally qualified on Saturday at the Tyson Invitational. The mark is the 18th fastest in the country and second fastest in the conference. The group is one of only two relays in the league to provisionally qualify.
