Florida State athletics

For the first time in 16 years, Florida State has an ACC cross country champion.

At the ACC Championships on Friday in South Bend, Ind., FSU’s Adriaan Wildschutt finished in 23 minutes and seven seconds to claim the honor. That was 16 seconds better than Notre Dame’s Dylan Jacobs for the men’s title.

Wildschutt becomes the first FSU runner to win an ACC title since Andrew Lemoncello won consecutive titles in 2004 and 2005. As a team, the FSU men finished fifth, but Ahmen Muhumed also finished third for the Seminoles. The Fighting Irish claimed the men’s title, followed by Syracuse, Wake Forest and North Carolina.

The FSU women finished third behind NC State and North Carolina. Lauren Ryan and Maudie Skyring paced the Seminoles, finishing 11th and 13th, respectively. Rebecca Clark also had a strong showing for FSU, finishing 22nd overall.

FSU will have one week off before beginning the NCAA Regionals on Nov. 12.
