The University of Florida will play host to its final home track and field event of the 2013 season Saturday when it entertains a number of impressive teams and athletes at the Tom Jones Memorial Classic. The event begins at 12 p.m. ET and is free and open to the public.


The field includes Florida A&M, Florida Atlantic, FIU, Jacksonville, Navy, UNF and UCF. Some standout post-collegians participating in the field include Will Claye, Jeff Demps, Justin Gatlin, Chantae McMillan, Tony McQuay, David Oliver, Shara Proctor, Calvin Smith, Loreal Smith and Kellie Wells.


The meet is being held in honor of former longtime University of Florida women’s track and field coach Tom Jones, who passed away on March 21, 2007 at the age of 62 after a courageous battle with cancer. He oversaw the Gator women’s program for nearly half of its existence, serving as head coach for 15 of the program’s 35 seasons to that point. He guided 71 athletes to 245 All-America honors on the track, while his teams posted a combined 15 top-10 finishes at the NCAA Indoor and Outdoor Championships.


The Gator men enter this weekend’s meet ranked No. 3 in the nation, while Florida’s women are No. 5. Live results will be available on via Delta Timing and a full recap and results will be available at GatorZone at the end of the day.


This weekend is one of two final regular season meets for the Orange and Blue, as the Gators travel to Fayetteville, Ark. for the Arkansas Spring Invitational, April 26-27, and the Payton Jordan Invitational in Palo Alto, Calif. on April 28.
