Hollowayís Take

ďWeíre extremely proud of Brittany (Harrell). She came out and displayed a whole lot of pride and passion finishing fourth and breaking a school record today. Coming off of knee surgery last year, she is progressing well and as we work towards the national championships in a couple of weeks, weíre on the right path. I think the rest of the team can use Brittany as an example; when you trust your training and your coaches and compete with pride and passion, the Gators are going to be ok.Ē
