The women’s cross-country team was back in action at the Florida State University Open in Tallahassee on Friday. The Bobcats were the only junior college program racing against the top NCAA Division I and II programs in the country. Instead of the usual 5K (3.1 miles) race, the women ran a 6K (3.73 miles) on the beautiful Apalachee Regional Park course. Brigham Young University ranked #1 in the country and won the race with a team average of 20:42. The Bobcats placed 28th out of 29 teams with a time of 27:27. This was a tremendous experience for our team.
The men’s baseball team started their fall season by defeating Polk State and a travel ball team. Florida Southwestern State will visit the Bobcats on Saturday for a noon doubleheader.
The women’s volleyball team battled South Florida State and Palm Beach State in Sun-Lakes Conference action over the weekend.

The team will travel to St. Johns River State and Lake Sumter State next weekend.
