Members of the UF men’s and women’s track and field teams competed in three different meets over the weekend but they came home with similar results.

The Gators recorded seven NCAA Indoor Championship automatic qualifying marks, 11 provisional marks and combined to win four events. This weekend’s meets were the last regular-season opportunity for UF to compete before the Southeastern Conference championships.

“I’m very, very proud of all three groups for getting some really good things done this weekend,” Florida coach Mike Holloway told the media Saturday night. “While we’re definitely pleased with the big things we were able to do this weekend, we’re not satisfied. The SEC meet is in two weeks and we have to be at our very best in all areas if we want to accomplish our goals.”

UF’s throwers traveled to Ames, Iowa for the Iowa State Classic while the distance runners competed at the Husky Classic in Seattle. The rest of the team was in Fayetteville, Ark. for the Tyson Invitational. 

The Gators recorded four automatic marks at the Randal Tyson Track Center, which will host the SEC Indoor Championships on Feb. 26-28.

The distance team put together a strong showing in Seattle, where Charlotte Browning won the women’s mile with a 4:31:24, slicing nearly five seconds off her previous best and setting a UF record in the event.
