Noles Head to Arkansas to Compete at Tyson Invite

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The No. 5/14 Florida State track and field team hit’s the road once again to Fayetteville, Ark. for the Tyson Invite hosted by Arkansas on Friday, Feb. 12 and Saturday, Feb. 13.

Thus far in 2021, the Seminoles have produced 12 NCAA top-15 performances (6 men/6 women). Leading that group are NCAA leaders Trey Cunningham (men’s 60-meter hurdles) and Isaac Grimes (men’s long jump). Jeremiah Davis (No. 2 – long jump), Kasaun James (No.2 – 60m), and Don’drea Swint (No.4 – 60m) also hold top-five marks for the men. On the women’s side Ruta Lasmane leads the way as the lone Seminole with a top-five mark in the NCAA this year (No. 3 – triple jump).

The Noles last competed in the Bob Pollock Invitational with top performances resulting in four ACC performers of the week honors. Jayla Kirkland, Swint, Grimes, and Lasmane received those honors after their stellar performances. Three of the four will be back in action this weekend to try and continue their indoor season success.

The women’s and men’s teams will once again be joined by a fleet of distance runners who ran for the first time this season at Clemson. Maudie Skyring will be one of those looking to add to her previous success as she ranks No. 9 (3000m) & No. 11 (mile) in the NCAA.

The Tyson Invite begins on Friday at the Randal Tyson Track Center with field competition at 11 a.m. CT and concludes Saturday afternoon with the 4×400-meter relays. The meet will stream live on SEC Network+ on both Friday and Saturday.
