Alex Midgett begins her third season on the women’s cross country staff, and second as an operations assistant, where she’s tasked with a variety of duties as the top aide to women’s head coach Kelly Phillips. She spent her first year as a volunteer assistant, serving primarily as one of two coaches for the walk-on squad.
She has been a hands-on contributor as the Noles women returned to the NCAA Cross Country Championships in 2018 for the first time since 2014. FSU’s women also won the 2019 ACC Outdoor title and placed 10th at the NCAA Outdoor Championships.
Midgett is no stranger to the program, having competed for the Noles for four seasons, culminating with her graduation in the spring of 2016. Demonstrating the same hard work she brings to her current position, Midgett recorded personal bests in each of her last four meets as a collegian.
An outstanding student, she was a four-year ACC Honor Roll selection on her way to earning a bachelor’s degree in exercise science.
A native of Orange Park, Fla., Midgett graduated from Ridgeview High in 2012, having competed on both the cross country and track & field teams. In 2009 she helped lead Ridgeview to a fifth-place team finish at the 3A state cross country championships.
