Gators' Stipe Zunic tossed a PR in the shot put Friday to wrap up the 2014 regular season for UF.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida junior thrower Stipe Zunic tossed a PR of 19.92m/65-4.25 to take the men’s shot put title at the FSU Twilight in Tallahassee Friday evening at Mike Long Track.

 

Zunic put a stamp on the outdoor regular-season for the No. 1 Gators with the second-best performance in school history, the second-best performance in the Southeastern Conference and the fifth-best mark in the country heading into the 2014 SEC Outdoor Championships May 15-18 in Lexington, Ky., next week.

 

Zunic was just shy of the 22-year-old shot put school record 20.10m/65-11.5 set by Dwight Johnson in 1992.
