The Florida State track and field team sent a selected group of athletes to compete at the 108th running of the Penn Relays this weekend, which concluded on Saturday in Philadelphia. An announced crowd of over 50,000 packed the stands at Franklin Field on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania to see the nation’s top collegiate athletes compete as well as some of the world’s top Olympians, such as U.S.’s Marion Jones and Maurice Green who are both deemed the world’s fastest woman and man, respectively.
Dorian Scott, one week removed from helping FSU’s men’s team win its first ACC Outdoor title, won the men’s shot put with a toss of 57-00.75 (17.39m).
In the women’s triple jump championship, Teresa Bundy, who won the event at ACCs and is currently ranked third in the nation, finished second with a mark of 42-05.50 (12.94m).
In the women’s sprint medley championship of America, the Lady Seminoles placed sixth, crossing the finish line at 3:56.41. Bundy ran the 100-meter leg of the race followed by Shauna Quinn (200m), Tamara Campbell (400m) and Natalie Hughes (800m).
B.J. Linnenbrink threw the hammer 195-02 (59.48m) to place eighth in the men’s hammer throw championship.
In the women’s high jump, Stacey Taylor was unable to turn in a height due to the inclement weather conditions on Friday evening during the competition.
The Seminoles will return to action on May 4, when they travel up to Athens, Ga. to compete at the Georgia Bulldog Classic.
