GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- After a two-week training period following the Gatorsí two home meets of 2014, the Orange and Blue will swing back into action this weekend at two different competitions in Louisiana and California.

LAST TIME OUT | NOTING THE GATORS

         In the April 29 USTFCCCA Outdoor Division I National Computer Rankings, the Gators checked in at No. 1 on the menís side and No. 2 in the womenís rankings.

         The Florida squads wrapped up home competition with the Tom Jones Memorial Invitational April 19 at Percy Beard Track in Gainesville.

         Several runners highlighted the Tom Jones for the Gators Ė like junior Dedric Dukes with a PR in the 400m (45.66) and 800m PRs across the board on the menís and womenís sides, but it was a special weekend for the Gator field athletes.

         Junior Ciarra Brewer was named the April 22 SEC Womenís Field Athlete of the Week after claiming the triple jump title with a leap of 13.15m/43-1.75 in her first outing in the event of the outdoor season. Brewerís initial 2014 mark wasnít too far off her PR and the UF record at 13.85m/45-5.25. Brewer, who had the best performance in the SEC in the event that week, now owns the second-best triple-jump mark in the Southeastern Conference and ranks at No. 7 in the NCAA at this point in the season, fourth in the NCAA East Division.

         Junior menís thrower Kyle Strawn additionally tossed a PR to take the menís hammer throw title (68.18m/223-8). Strawn has won or been the top collegiate finisher in every meet heís competed in this season for UF Ė Texas Relays, Florida Relays and the Tom Jones Ė and ranks second in the SEC in the hammer.

         Sophomore jumper/sprinter Robyn Reynolds also leapt a PR in the womenís long jump with a 6.36m/20-10.5 to enter UFís all-time top 10 list with the mark. Reynolds ranks fourth in the league after her first long jump performance of the outdoor campaign.
