The Florida menís 4x400-meter relay, composed of Hugh Graham, Jr. (Miami, Fla.), Dedric Dukes (Miami, Fla.), Leonardo Seymore (Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.) and Arman Hall (Pembroke Pines, Fla.), has been named the Southeastern Conference Menís Runner of the Week for their world-leading time at the Razorback Invitational this past weekend, the league offices in Birmingham, Ala. announced Tuesday.

 

The Gator foursome, consisting of three underclassmen, clocked in at 3:05.93, the seventh-fastest time in program history. The time went down as the fastest in the SEC and the NCAA this season and came against a competitive field at the Razorback Invitational that included relay teams from Arkansas, LSU and Baylor, all of which currently rank among the nationís top 4x400-meter relay foursomes. The Gator menís team finished runner-up to host and No. 1 Arkansas last weekend.

 

This is the second SEC weekly honor for the Orange and Blue this season, as junior Cory McGee (Pass Christian, Miss.) was named the SEC Co-Womenís Runner of the Week for her performance at the Crimson Tide Indoor Opener two weeks ago.

 

Next up for the Orange and Blue is the Frank Sevigne Husker Invitational in Lincoln, Neb. on Friday and Saturday, February 1-2. A full schedule of events for the two-day meet can be found here.
