Top 10 Local Sports Stories - #10

Florida State athletics hadn't taken home a National Championship since 1999 when the Seminoles defeated Virginia Tech to take home the title.

But in June, head coach Bob Braman led his number one ranked Florida State Men's Track and Field team to Sacramento, looking to end the drought.

Ricardo Chambers and Tom Lancashire both secured second place finishes in their respective events.

Walter Dix followed his 100m title last season with a 200m championship in 06', but it wasn't just on the track where the Noles got it done.

Rhodes Scholar Garrett Johnson showed that you can have brains and brawn by winning the discus, and when Rafeeq Curry won the triple jump on Sunday afternoon, that sealed the deal for the Seminoles.

The National Championship was the first for Florida State's track and field team and completed a season in which the team won the Triple Crown of Conference, Regional, And National Champions, making them the 10th best local sports story of 2006.

Announcer said, "Florida State has done it."
