AUSTIN, Texas -- Florida’s 4x1 and 4x4 relays were a force to be reckoned with Saturday at the Texas Relays, as the Gator men’s quartet of Antwan Wright, Hugh Graham, Jr., Arman Hall and Dedric Dukes cruised to a school and American collegiate record 38.29 in the 4x1, a Texas Relays meet record, third-best time in collegiate history and the second-fastest in the world this year at the time of competition.

 

Najee Glass, Graham, Jr., Dukes and Hall struck later in the day to win the 4x4, making it all about the Orange and Blue in the last event of the 87th Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays with a 3:01.26 winning performance with the fastest collegiate time so far this season, pending other weekend results.

 

The Gators’ continued to carve up the record book Saturday as the women’s squad posted the third-fastest 4x1 time in Florida history en route to the top collegiate mark this season so far as Robin Reynolds, Shayla Sanders, Destinee Gause and Ebony Eutsey clocked a 43.60 to take top honors in the women’s 4x100-meter relay. Reynolds, senior Lanie Whittaker – who made her 2014 debut Saturday – Gause and Eutsey proceeded to cruise to a second-place 3:27.62 performance in the 4x4 relay to wrap up women’s competition at Mike A. Myers Stadium in Austin.

 

Highlighting UF’s individual performances Saturday, Wright additionally put up a special performance in the 100m dash, clocking a PR of 10.20 (+1.5) to finish fifth in finals while jumping onto UF’s top-10 list at No. 9 in the event. In the women’s 100m, Sanders cruised to a wind-aided 11.21 (+2.7), one-hundredth off her PR 11.20 from Friday’s prelims, the third-fastest performance in UF history.

 

In other Gator track competition across the country, Florida junior Ashley Favors clocked a season-best 14.34 (+0.6) in the 100mH to lead the way for the three Gator women’s hurdlers in finals of the event at the UNF Invite with a third-place finish, while distance Gator Elliot Clemente capped of competition at the Raleigh Relays for the Orange and Blue with a 31:06.68 PR in the 10,000m.

HOLLOWAY’S TAKE

“Today we just capped off a great weekend for us. We had a talk with the athletes – and I had a talk with the staff – about us maintaining our focus. Texas Relays is one of the most prestigious events in the world and when you come to an event like this, you have to engage in the intensity and the passion that other teams show here. We did that this weekend. I was very proud of the (men’s) 4x1 today – a new school record and American collegiate record – it was a wonderful job. I thought the ladies did a wonderful job in the 4x1, Eddie (Lovett) in the hurdles, Bridgette (Owens) in the hurdles – everybody that put the uniform on today was wonderful. The ladies 4x4 – very proud of that time today to finish second. It was Lanie Whittaker’s first race of the year, so we’ll get a lot more out of her by the end of the year. The guy’s (4x4) finish, 3:01, was faster than we finished here last year. Really, really pleased, proud and satisfied. We have to get back to Gainesville and get rested for a day or so before we get ready for Florida Relays next week.”
