NEW ORLEANS, La. -- After picking up SEC Indoor Men’s and Co-Women’s Runner of the Year awards, respectively, Florida’s Arman Hall and Cory McGee have been tabbed the USTFCCCA South Region Indoor Men’s and Women’s Athletes of the Year, while Florida head coach Mike Holloway, the 2014 SEC Indoor Women’s Coach of the Year, garnered South Region Women’s Coach of the Year honors, unveiled by the track & field coaches’ association Monday.

 

Under Holloway’s tutelage, Hall and McGee both turned in high point finishes for the Orange and Blue at the 2014 SEC Indoor Championships two weeks ago in College Station, McGee with 20.5 points towards the Gators’ SEC title performance, while Hall tied for the men’s Cliff Harper Trophy as well, putting up 20 points towards the men’s sixth straight top-two performance.

 

Hall, a sophomore from Pembroke Pines, Fla., is the No. 2 collegian and No. 3 in the world this year in the 400m (45.28) and No. 3 in the 200m (20.58), good for sixth in the world. Both times came at the SEC Championships, where he won the 200m title and finished runner-up at 400m en route to moving to No. 7 on the all-time collegiate indoor performers list. Hall additionally ran the anchor leg of the runner-up 4×400 relay that tied the old collegiate record and set a new Florida school record (3:03.50). The Bowerman Watch List member will run both at 200m, 400m and 4×400 relay at the NCAA Division I Indoor Championships next week in Albuquerque.

 

McGee, a senior from Pass Christian, Miss., was the high scorer at the SEC Championships with a PR and title at 3000m (9:10.48), a runner-up finish and season-best mark in the mile (4:35.03) and a leg of the winning distance medley relay (11:08.11). McGee’s times at SECs rank her No. 7 and No. 19, respectively, as the distance Gator will compete at the NCAA Division I Indoor Championships in the mile and DMR.

 

In his seventh year as head coach of the UF women’s squad, Holloway coached the No. 1 Gators to their third SEC Indoor Championship in the last five years. Florida qualified 23 total for the NCAA Indoor Championships, the second-most in school history, including 12 women’s student-athletes with a meet-best 14 event entries. For Holloway, the Indoor South Region Coach of the Year honor is his third after garnering the award in both 2010 and 2012.
