HOLLOWAY’S TAKE

“I am extremely pleased with the weekend overall at a great meet with great teams competing; I thought it was important for our team to come into this meet with the right mindset. We talked about matching the intensity of our competitors and we did that. Another great run by Arman (Hall) today in the 400m and Eddie Lovett was Eddie Lovett in the hurdles. Great performance by CiCi (Ciarra Brewer) in the triple jump to take the national lead and the 800m was just tremendous for our youngsters – Ryan (Schnulle) and Andres Arroyo. We ended the meet on a great note with the men’s 4x4 – a great group of young men. I’m also very proud of Mark Parrish in the 3000m – he doesn’t especially love indoors and for him to come out here and have the performance he did was really great. I’m very proud of our team, but it’s over now – we’ll get back to Gainesville, get rested and get back to work.”
