GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- With the 2014 indoor season behind them following a stellar NCAA Championships run March 14-15 in Albuquerque, N.M, the Gator track and field squads will waste no time jumping into outdoor action, as Florida will send a contingent of hurdlers and distance athletes to the FSU Relays March 21 in Tallahassee.

 

After third-place NCAA indoor finishes for both UF’s men’s and women’s teams, this weekend begins the quest for a third-straight NCAA outdoor title for the Orange and Blue on the men’s side, while the women’s squad starts the mission for its second national championship, the first outdoors. Florida owns four SEC outdoor titles on the men’s side and five on the women’s side.

 

UF will take six hurdlers to Tallahassee, while 19 Gator runners will participate in the Friday Distance Showcase at the FSU Relays.
