FSU Relays Friday Results

 

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Just a week after wrapping up the indoor season at the 2014 NCAA Championships in Albuquerque, the Orange and Blue track and field Gators eased into the outdoor season Friday at the FSU Relay at Mike Long Track in Tallahassee.

 

UF sent a contingent of hurdlers and middle-distance Gators to the FSU Relays, and Florida represented well. Freshmen hurdlers Skylar Ross-Ransom (14.09, -1.3) and Yanick Hart (14.15, -1.3) took second and third in the 100 and 110m hurdles, respectively, while UF placed all four women’s hurdlers in the top 10 with Tyjah Eady (14.37, -1.3), Ashley Favors (14.39, -1.3) and Ryann McEnany (14.69, -1.3) in fourth, fifth and eighth, respectively.

 

Gators Gabriel Aird (49.27) and Tyler Osorio (49.30) both represented the Orange and Blue in the 400m with 11th and 12th-place finishes, while the bulk of Florida’s competitors Friday were in the 1500m to cap off UF’s first weekend outdoors.

 

Florida had four top-10 men’s 1500m finishers, paced by Eddie Garcia’s 3:57.78 fourth-place finish and Florida PR, while Mac Reynolds (3:58.11), Carlos Miranda (3:59.02) and Brian Gorwitz (3:59.86) rounded out UF’s top-10 competitors in seventh, eighth and 10th, respectively.

 

On the women’s side in the 1500m, it was Macy Huskey (4:37.78) that led the charge for the Gators with an outdoor best in the event, while all six Gators were top-25 finishers in the race. Senior Brittany Koziara (4:44.52) ran a stellar race to debut her final season donning the Orange and Blue. The remaining quartet of UF’s women’s runners in the race chalked up their first marks as Gators.

 

UP NEXT

The Gators will hit the road for the Lone Star State March 26-29 for the Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays in Austin. Stay posted to www.GatorZone.com for a complete preview and for all meet information.
