TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State Track and Field teams are back in action this weekend as they head to Gainesville, Fla. to compete at the Florida Relays Friday and Saturday.
“We’re looking forward to a great meet this weekend,” said Head Coach Bob Braman. “All the top powers in our Region will be there including out ACC rival Virginia Tech and national rival Florida. We had some good performances at FSU Relays and we need to keep that momentum going as we approach the mid-season point.”
Action will begin on Friday at Percy Beard Track at James G. Pressly Stadium beginning with field events at 10 a.m. and track events at 4 p.m. On Saturday, field events start at 10 a.m. once again and on the track at noon.
In addition to the host Florida, participating schools include Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Iowa State, Maimi (Fla.), Mississippi State, South Carolina, Southern California and Virginia Tech. Seven of the 13 women’s teams are ranking in the nation’s top 25 and five men’s teams are nationally ranked as well.
The Seminoles are coming off their only home meet of the year, FSU relays, where Trey Cunningham posted the world leading 110-meter hurdles time of 13.51. This world leading time has since been beaten and Cunningham is looking to get back on top this weekend.
The throwing squad will also be looking to continue their success with Shanice Love coming off ACC Women’s Co-Field Performer of the Week honors after her tremendous efforts last weekend with a discus throw of 58.13m.
