Florida State wins in a tough field

No. 2 Florida State at Wake Forest Invitational

KERNERSVILLE, N.C. -- The objectives for Florida State were quite simple at the Wake Forest Invitational/Pre-ACC meet:

1) Get familiar with the Beeson Park course that will host the ACC Championship meet on Nov. 1, and; 2) Turn in a performance equivalent to a high-end workout, or early-season race effort.

The Seminoles accomplished both tasks, and picked up a victory against a field that included host Wake Forest, Clemson, Ohio and Miami (Ohio), among others.

Junior transfer Hannah Walker (20:42.71) and classmate Colleen Quigley (20:59.8) cruised to a 1-2 finish on the twisting, turning and rolling 6000m course, outdistancing Ohio's Juli Accurso - an All-American and the Great Lakes Region champion in 2012.

FSU junior Linden Hall (21:09.79) and sophomore Pippa Woolven (21:16.192) were fourth and fifth overall, while sophomore teammates Georgia Peel (21:26.10) and Carly Thomas (21:34.74) placed seventh and eighth. The second-ranked Seminoles grabbed nine of the top 14 finishing positions and easily out-distanced runner-up Ohio, 19-59.

Freshman Anna Holdiman (10th, 21:40,94), grad student Jess Butler (13th, 21:53.36) and freshman Bridget Blake (14th, 21:59.22) rounded out the lead Seminoles.
