TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) - The Florida State track and field program was at one time one to be reckoned with. Numerous Olympians have gotten their start with the program, and while both the men and women's programs have done well in ACC Competition, neither has won a team National title in over a decade. That's in outdoor. Indoor track and field? It's always been considered prep for the outdoor season for the Seminoles, but not this year.
The men are the top team in the country, and the women are ranked 12th. Both teams have big goals of winning titles both inside and outside this year, and they're excited to be a part of it.
"We worked so hard to get to the point we are right now," said junior sprinter Ka'tia Seymour. "Since I've been a freshman, there's been other people that graduated to get this program to where it is now. We're excited we're starting to get back to where Florida State track and field was."
"It's a little different than normal," added head coach Bob Braman. "We in the past have taken what we've taken. Right now, with the chance to win we're all focused on it. We'll see what happens, we still have a long way to go."
So how dominant can this team be? Right now, they rank first and second in the nation in the men's 60-meter hurdles, and third and eighth in the women's 60 meter-dash.
