Florida State men’s track and field had a strong showing over the 2-day NCAA Indoor Championships, which wrapped on Saturday with a top-10 finish in Birmingham.

Overall, the men finished in a sixth-place tie with Texas Tech. Florida claimed the men’s title, followed by Houston, LSU and then Stanford and Wisconsin, who tied for fourth place.

The FSU women finished 35th overall while Arkansas claimed the team title. Still, there were solid individual performances across the board for FSU.

Sophomore Trey Cunningham claimed a bronze in the men’s 60-meter hurdles. In the women’s 60-meter dash, Ka’Tia Seymour, also a sophomore, claimed a bronze of her own.

Kasaun James, an FSU sophomore, claimed silver in the 200 meters. Both he and freshman teammate Bryand Rincher were first-team All-Americans in the 60 meters. Senior Armani Wallace also earned that distinction with a fourth-place finish in the long jump, giving the men five first-team honorees.

The sixth-place finish is the highest for the FSU men since 2014. The outdoor season starts on Friday with the Florida A&M Relays and the UCF Invitational.
