TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State Track and Field team opened up the 41st FSU Relays on their home track with three event wins, three Seminole top-10 marks and five personal bests.
Megan Cook set the tone for the day in the women’s hammer throw with a mark of 52.43m. Not only is this a personal best but she also ranks No. 8 on the FSU All-Time Top-10 list.
Cook wasn’t the only Seminole thrower earning a top-10 mark. Caisa-Marie Lindfors, making her outdoor debut in the Garnet and Gold, threw a 16.09m PB and a No. 6 all-time throw in the women’s shot put. Teammate Amani Heaven also earned a PB with the mark of 15.60m. Milton Ingraham added on a personal best of his own in the men’s shot put with an 18.08m.
The jumps squad was not to be outdone as Jacore Irving went on to finish first in the long jump with the mark of 7.50m. Alonie Sutton, after coming off an incredible indoor season, made her outdoor debut in style as she went 6.43m in the women’s long jump earning her a personal best and the No. 6 spot on the FSU All-Time Top-10 list.
While jumping with two different shoes due to one of them being torn during the first jump, Jordan Wesner made his Seminole debut with incredible grace. He went on to take first in the high jump at the height of 2.12m.
Closing out day one of the FSU Relays was Jodie Judd in the women’s 5,000m. To say she had an incredible race is an understatement. Judd went on to win the event clocking in at 16:47.96 and a whole 200m ahead of the pack.
The Noles will return to action Friday starting at 10:00 a.m. with the discus throw where Shanice Love will finally make her 2021 season debut. Friday’s schedule in addition to the rest of the meet information can be found HERE.
