FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Florida women’s track and field team finished second at the SEC Indoor Track and Field Championships, collecting one gold medal and securing top-three finishes on Saturday night.
“Phenomenal job,” Florida coach Mike Holloway said of the Gator women’s team. “You bring 14 girls into this meet and actually 12 of them competed. Of the 12 who put the uniform on and competed, they all scored. For them to be second in this league with 12 girls was phenomenal.”
The UF men finished fifth with one individual crown, one silver and two bronze medals for a total of 57 team points.
“We fired the bullets that we had,” Holloway said of his men. “We’ve got to get a little tougher. I know we had some people down and we were missing some people, but we had some people here that just aren’t buying. I’m the head coach and that’s my deal. I’ve got to fix that.”
