The No. 1 men's team and No. 6 women's team are set to compete in their second indoor event of the 2018 season in Nashville, Tennessee, this weekend. 

The Florida men’s and women’s track and field teams will compete at the Commodore Invitational in Nashville, Tennessee, today and Saturday for UF’s second meet of the 2018 indoor season.

The men’s team, ranked No. 1, and the women’s team, ranked No. 6, combined for five first-place finishes Saturday at the Orange and Purple Classic in Clemson, South Carolina.

The men’s team is led by senior KeAndre Bates and sophomore Grant Holloway, both of whom were named to the Bowerman Preseason Watch List on Tuesday.

Both were semifinalists for the Bowerman award last season, which is given to the top student-athlete in collegiate track and field.

Freshman Benjamin Lobo Vedel, coming off a first-place finish in the 300-meter in his Gators debut Saturday, was named the USTFCCCA Division I Men’s National Athlete of the Week on Tuesday.

The Denmark native’s 300-meter time of 32.80 seconds tied the fourth-best mark in collegiate history and broke the Danish record of 33.07 seconds run by Nick Ekelund-Alexander in 2013.

The women’s team features senior Lloydricia Cameron, an SEC champion in the shot put, who took first place in the event in the Orange and Purple Classic.
