THE GATORS ENTERING FLORIDA RELAYS | COMPLETE FLORIDA PREVIEW

After splitting for a successful weekend at the Texas & Raleigh Relays, as well as the UNF Spring Break Invite March 26-29, the Florida track and field program will play host to the 2014 Pepsi Florida Relays April 3-5 at Percy Beard Track at James G. Pressly Stadium. The three-day meet will serve as one of UF’s two home meets in a span of two weeks, as the Gators will host the Tom Jones Memorial Invite April 19. The Gators walked away from the Texas Invite with a number of SEC and collegiate-leading marks after facing four days of stiff competition in Austin, highlighted by a new American collegiate record in the 4x100-meter relay for UF’s Antwan Wright, Hugh Graham, Jr., Arman Hall and Dedric Dukes(38.29). The quartet was not only the fastest American collegiate 4x1 in history, but shattered a Florida school record in the event and ran the second-fastest time in the world this year. 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, Shayla 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. The Gators had a number of record-book worthy performances, including a top-three finish for junior transfer Bridgette Owens (12.96w) in her 100mH Gator debut, while UF men’s hurdler Eddie Lovett (13.45w) continued to impress with second place in the 110mH. Sophomore javelin thrower Marija Vucenovic tossed a collegiate leading 56.73m/186-1 Friday, a new PR and the third-best performance in the Gators’ record book and both the Gators’ 4x1 and 4x4 women’s relays additionally put up good marks the first go-around in 2014, as the women won the 4x1 (43.60) and took second in the 4x4 (3:27.62), both of which lead the SEC early in the season.
