The Gators started their 2023 outdoor campaign strong. The FSU Relays tournament was full of debuts and personal bests.

Florida claimed nine spots on the podium during the two-day meet, with four athletes earning gold.

Redshirt senior Corvell Todd also brought home a medal on day one. Todd received bronze in the men’s high jump.

Redshirt junior Michael Holloway II improved his outdoor personal best in the men’s triple jump and earned second place.

Redshirt junior Kurt Powdar produced the Gators’’s second silver Friday in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 14.18 seconds. 

Redshirt sophomore Ashley Klingenberg claimed the next gold medal for UF during the women’s 800-meter. Klingenberg’s time of 2:11.69 surpassed her previous best. 

Florida took first place in both the men’s and women’s 1,500-meter. Redshirt senior Kathryn Nohilly won gold for the women in her Gators debut. Redshirt senior Cavan Wilson earned gold for the men, improving his personal record. 

The team will next compete at home for the Pepsi Florida Relays on March 31 and April 1. The event will be the first of two home outdoor meets UF will host this season.
