Wildschutt Captures Second ACC Honor

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State junior Adriaan Wildschutt was recognized as the ACC Performer of the Week for the second time this season, following his performance at the FSU Last Chance Meet on March 5.

Wildschutt won the men’s 8K with a time of 23:30.8, which was 16 seconds ahead of the second place finisher. His performance was also the eighth fastest in Apalachee Regional Park history.

“Adriaan had an incredible first season as a Seminole,” FSU head coach Bob Braman said. “He’s been the class of the ACC all season. This is a well-deserved honor.”

The Ceres, South Africa, native, helped the Seminoles record their best average at the APR in school history at 24:04.

Wildschutt and senior Ahmed Muhumed will be among the 38 individuals invited to compete at the NCAA Championships on March 15 in Stillwater, Oklahoma, in the men’s 10K.
