BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Gator junior jumper Ciarra Brewer is the April 22 SEC Women’s Field Athlete of the Week after claiming the triple jump title at UF’s Tom Jones Memorial Invitational April 19 at Percy Beard Track.

 

The defending SEC outdoor triple jump champion, Brewer leapt 13.15m/431.75 at the Tom Jones in her first outing of the outdoor season. Brewer’s initial 2014 mark wasn’t too far off her PR and the UF school record at 13.85m/45-5.25.

 

Brewer, who had the best performance in the SEC in the event last week, now owns the second-best triple-jump mark in the Southeastern Conference and ranks at No. 5 in the NCAA at this point in the season, fourth in the NCAA East Division.

 

Brewer was among a number of Florida field athletes that had standout performances at the Tom Jones, including junior men’s thrower Kyle Strawn, who tossed a PR to take the men’s hammer throw title (68.18m/223-8). Strawn has won or been the top collegiate finisher in every meet he’s competed in this season for UF – Texas Relays, Florida Relays and the Tom Jones – and ranks second in the SEC in the hammer. Sophomore jumper/sprinter Robyn Reynolds also leapt a PR in the women’s long jump with a 6.36m/20-10.5 to enter UF’s all-time top 10 list with the mark. Reynolds ranks fourth in the league after her first long jump performance of the outdoor campaign.
