Track & field team honored at White House

Coming off an exciting championship season, the two-time National Champion Florida State men’s track and field team headed to the nation’s capitol Monday, June 18, to meet President Bush in honor of the Seminoles’ back-to-back title-winning seasons.

Both the 2006 and 2007 men’s teams were invited, making them the first Seminoles to have the opportunity to visit the White House since 1999.

Florida State men’s track and field team began the outdoor season ranked No. 1 and swept the championship season with title wins at the ACC, NCAA East Region and NCAA National Championship meets.
