SEC Indoors Gator Bytes

         Florida returns 2013 SEC indoor champions Eddie Lovett (60mH), Marquis Dendy (LJ) and Sean Obinwa (800m) on the menís side, as Lovett will strive to be the first four-time SEC indoor champion in the menís 60-meter hurdles and Dendy will jump towards being just the second three-time SEC indoor long jump champion, the first since 1994. Obinwa will look to be the first repeat winner in the menís 800m since 2006.

         The Gator womenís squad enters the 2014 league indoor championships with the defending SEC indoor mile champion in senior Cory McGee, who will be looking for her third title in the event in four years and would be the third womenís runner in the league to claim three mile titles. Florida also claimed the 2013 SEC title in the womenís DMR, as McGee and fellow senior Agata Strausa composed half of that relay team last season.

         Florida owns the top marks in the league in the menís 200 (Hall, 20.68), the menís 800m (Obinwa, 1:47.76), the menís 5000m (Mark Parrish, 13:43.15), the menís 60mH (Lovett, 7.69), the womenís triple jump (Ciarra Brewer, 13.55m/44-5.5) and the menís 4x4 relay (3:04.46), a mark that additionally leads the world.

         Throughout the span of the indoor season so far, two Gator indoor records have gone down: the womenís 200m (Kyra Jefferson: 23.06) and the menís 5000m (Parrish: 13:43.15).

         Two Gator womenís squad members in junior sprinter Loreal Curtis and freshman hurdler Skylar Ross-Ransom will compete in front of a home crowd for the second time for this season, as the duo hails from nearby Houston. Both Curtis and Ross-Ransom also competed at the Texas A&M Invitational two weeks ago. Curtis is an alumna of Lutheran South High School, while Ross-Ransom graduated from Langham Creek High School in Houston.

 

The 2014 SEC Indoor Championships kick off Feb. 27 at 2 p.m. ET in College Station with the womenís pentathlon and the first four events of the menís heptathlon, while track and field action continues Feb. 28 and March 1st with the 4x4 relays slated as the closing event to the conference championships Saturday at approximately 5:50 p.m. ET.
