Four Gators were named to Team USA for the 2012 IAAF World Junior Track & Field Championships, having finished in the top two of their event at the 2012 USA Junior Outdoor Track & Field Championships in Bloomington, Ind.

 

Rising sophomore Taylor Burke (Medina, Ohio) claimed the USA Junior Championship in the womenís high jump, earning her a spot at the IAAF World Junior Championships in Barcelona, Spain from July 10-15.

 

Burke cleared 1.80m/5-10.75 to take home the title, as the 2012 SEC Champion in the womenís high jump didnít miss a bar until her final height.

 

Fellow rising sophomore Ciarra Brewer (Union City, Calif.) turned in a runner-up finish in the womenís triple jump, as the 2012 SEC Champion in the womenís triple jump earned her spot in Barcelona with a jump of 13.03m/42-9 (0.0).

 

Incoming freshman Robin Reynolds (Miami, Fla.) won the womenís long jump, joining Burke and Brewer on the U.S. roster for the IAAF World Junior Championships. Reynolds leaped 6.24m/20-5.75 (+0.1) to win the event and cement her place in Barcelona.

 

Incoming freshman Arman Hall (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.) was the lone Gator male to make the Team USA roster, finishing second in 45.77 to solidify his spot for the red, white and blue.
