FSU women pursue top-4 finish, Ewers chasing title

The Florida State men’s and women’s track teams will send a large group of qualifiers to the NCAA Championships Wednesday-Saturday.

There will be 11 FSU women participating in the event, with the first women’s events occurring on Thursday evening. The men’s team begins with the 4×100 relay on Wednesday evening.

With 11 qualifiers, the FSU women have a chance to finish in the top 4 for the first time in 10 years.

Among the men to watch on Wednesday: Andre Ewers, a senior, who was the runner-up in the 200-meter dash at the 2018 NCAA Outdoor Championships. He qualified fourth-fastest from the East Preliminary meet in a personal-best time of 20.14.

Ewers will also be a part of the 4×100 relay team.

“You can make a good case that the relay has a chance to win,” FSU coach Bob Braman said. “You can make a really good case that Andre has a chance to win. You can make a good case that Armani [Wallace] has a chance to win. Even if none of those happen, and they come in the top four, then you’re probably in the top 20 or close.”

Andre Ewers will run in the 200 and the 4×100 relay on Wednesday.

The ESPN networks will provide coverage of the four-day event.
