Let’s take a look at how FSU and their Olympic sport teams did this past week.
While much of the attention is paid to the major FSU sports, including football, basketball and baseball, there is plenty of other athletic competition going on right now on the Tallahassee campus and across the country involving the ‘Noles. Here’s a recap of how some of the Olympic sports fared this past week.
The third ranked Lady ‘Noles made quick work of their competition during the opening weekend of the 2017 season, winning all five games of the Unconquered Invitational they hosted. FSU gave up just three runs in the five wins, coming out with two wins each over Furman and Marshall along with a victory over Lipscomb. Florida State will host FAMU on Wednesday and then host both Northwestern and Nebraska next weekend in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
Men’s and Women’s Track and Field
Both teams had positive weekends on the road, with distance runners in Boston and many other team members in Arkansas for the annual Tyson Invitational. Several members of both the men’s and women’s teams set personal best marks – something they hope will continue next weekend in Blacksburg, Virginia for the annual David Hemery Invitational.
Men’s and Women’s Tennis
The men’s team came out big this weekend at home, sweeping both their matches 4-0 against George Washington and the College of Charleston. They will take part in the men’s indoor championships this weekend hosted by the University of Virginia. Meanwhile, the Lady ‘Noles had the weekend off, but will get back on the court this weekend when they host Air Force and FAMU.
Men’s and Women’s Golf
The men’s team took the weekend off, but will get back on the links for the Gator Invitational next weekend hosted by the rival University of Florida. The Lady ‘Noles were in action this weekend and came out on top of the Seminole Match Up tournament in Tallahassee, winning by 10 strokes over South Carolina.
Men’s and Women’s Swimming
Both teams finish off the first part of their season this week with the ACC Diving Championships and the women’s championships being held in Atlanta.
